Hello to all,
I use icewm as default wm. Today I compiled gnome2 to give it a try and
I received the error below:
_IceTransmkdir: ERROR: euid != 0,directory /tmp/.ICE-unix will not be created.
_IceTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: mkdir(/tmp/.ICE-unix) failed, errno = 2
_IceTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to create listener for local
** (gnome-session:972): WARNING **: Cannot establish any listening sockets
waiting for X server to shut down
My first thought is a permission problem same as firefox a few weeks
ago, so I login as root, startx gnome2 and exit. Now, gnome2 starts ok
with my user.
Can anyone checked this out?
If you got gnome2 working ok as a regular user, please try the following
(as root; console mode):
# rm -r /tmp/.X11-unix/
# rm -r /tmp/.ICE-unix/
(as a regular user):
$ startx (gnome2)
I got the same error everytime I do this.
