I have searched without any luck. I installed Mint 8 on my IBM ThinkPad X61s. At the install it asked if it should automatically decrypt my home file. I chose yes. I ran update. It updated and I rebooted without a problem. Then I created a User Account also password protected. Rebooted many times with no problems. Everything was working fine.
I then transferred all of my documents and media from my back up drive onto my ThinkPad into my Administrative Account. After I transferred all the media; I decided to change my Administrator password. I went to users/groups and reset the password. Well it hung and just kept spinning it's wheels. I got frustrated and force the machine off and then rebooted. I tried again and the same thing, it just hung there. So I again forced a shut down. I then went into passwards/encryption and tried to change the password there. That to failed to work but after that shut down I no longer was able to boot to the Administrator Desktop.
This poses a huge problem for me. I can no longer access the documents and media since it was stored under the Administrative account. This ordinarily wouldn't be a big issue, however it is because previous to this I wiped my back up drive to reclaim a few partitions. So that account has all of my documents and media. The music and videos I can live without, but I have documents on there that I don't have hard copies of and that are vital to my existence.
I was able to switch my User Account to an Administrative role.
The following are the errors I receive in the order they appear one after another at boot up:
1. Could not update file ICEauthority file,
then I press OK
2. There is a problem with the configuration server. /usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256,
the I press OK
3. Nautilus could not create the following folders:
Please tell me there is a solution for this? Thanks in advance.
