Hi On my wifes asus netbook the battery went dead while the computer was in sleep mode. Now she cant log in. After the password is put in after a few seconds a window with the text "could not update ICEauthority file /home/lise/.ICEauthority" and the only option is the button Log Out. what to do? the computer is running LMDE updated to pack 4
1. At the login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get to the console.
2. Log in there.
3. Check if ".ICEauthority" is owned by you: Code: ls -al .ICEauthority 4. If it isn't (but possibly by root), change it to you: Code: sudo chown lise:lise .ICEauthority 5. Switch back to the login screen by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7 or F8
