"Unable to copy the user's Xauthorization file"
I'm attempting to install a.deb plan in Natty making use of gdebi plan installer:
But when I click "Install", the adhering to mistake message shows up:
Also, when I attempt to install anything from the Software Center, absolutely nothing takes place. I'm presuming this relates to the above mistake.
Could a person please aid me out with this?
EDIT: My residence folder does not have a.Xauthority documents.
Here is what I located by straightforward Googling,
First see to it that users.Xauthority documents exists in their residence directory site and also see to it it has the proper approvals. running
ls -l /home/username/.Xauthorityneeds to cause this result:
-rw------- 1 username username 319 2008-08-22 19:35 .Xauthority
If it does not resemble that, you might need to transform the possession and also approvals by hand: sudo chmod 600/ home/username/. Xauthority sudo chown username: username/ home/user/. Xauthority Be certain to transform all circumstances of username to the proper username.
Please examine the approval, customer name and also customer team of.Xauthority
ls -la ~/.Xauthority
It requires to be possessed by you and also the approvals need to be - rw - - - - - - - ¢ To modify name and also team:
sudo chown youruser:youruser ~/.Xauthority
To modify persmission to - rw - - - - - - - ¢
chmod u+rw ~/.Xauthority
(Replace youruser by your username.)
If this is the reason: Did you install anything before this plan or concern sudo commands? There are some points in the past that I saw screwing up the approval for this documents. Especially points like samba, sudo ssh.
