I am new to Linux. 20 day ago I installed Ubuntu 8.04 and enjoyed it. 3 days ago I downloaded the recommended updates (120 Mega), after that I also installed Wine, a version found on a magazine I think it was 1.01 or similar).
Now when I start ubuntu, after the request of inserting name and password I receive the following message:
"user's $Home/.dmrc file being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and have 644 permissions. User's $Home directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users".
When I press OK, after a few seconds a second message appears:
"The Gnome session manager was unable to lock the file '/home/oreste/.Iceauthority! Please report this as a gnome bug"
And after that everything goes back to the request of name and password. I tried different sessions but with no result. Of course I do not know how to use the line commands.
I love quite a few things with this mail. But clearly the best are
- Of course I do not know how to use the line commands
- Please report this as a gnome bug
- Please Help
