I have been running linux mint 5 on a new sata drive for about a month now. with out problems
quite suddenly today, things didn't work. First tomboy notes wouldn't load then I would get an error starting synaptic. (the error is this, "Failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic as user root. Unable to copy the user's Xauthorizationfile.") Next my system can't find clamav even though I have it installed.
Any Idea what may be happening.
I've restarted several times and I keep getting the same thing.
Any help in the right direction would be great.
