Startup Error Across Sessions

Postby wizard135 on Tue Oct 16, 2012 6:35 am

Hey all, Ive been having an issue with LMDE on startup, I am asked to logoff and presented with the below error. This began when I was installing and switching between a couple of new gtk themes on Cinnamon, however this error is exactly the same even when the session is in GNOME or Classic (MATE is uninstalled). Another oddity is that I can choose to not hit "ok" to the error dialog (which would continue the logout process) and continue on with my session- albeit without the option of changing the ugly gtk theme I am now stuck on. Any ideas on whats up? Thanks!

I think I've discovered at least part of the problem, however how to solve it is beyond me. Its a user issue. I created a new account, and everything worked fine. I suppose I could just go on now with a new profile, although if anybody still has a fix, that would be great if this comes up again.

access control disabled, clients can connect from any host


That must be the crucial bit right there, though Google doesnt look to be turning up anything applicable.
Somehow logging into my main account was operating Root

Well, I created a new user account and moved my files over so that I was not reliant on waiting for a response. It has happened again however.
Somehow, as indicated by the changed GTK theme, I am operating as root, or something of the sort. No idea whats causing this, I havnt been tinkering with any settings, just a reset and logging back in.
If I am missing a log that may be helpful to post, notification of that would be appreciated.

As described above, the issue is related to those that cover the transition from the mint-x package to mint-themes, a black on black terminal and a ugly default gtk theme-
Screens and solutions for others are here:

The solutions do not apply in this case however. Changing the gtk theme in cinnamon's options does not actually change any visible part of the system.
