Ubuntu – Error saying “unable to update ICE authority” while booting

boot failure

I often get an error saying

unable to update ICE authority.

Is there a way out of this?

Best Answer

It's possible that you were using a graphical application running as root that has updated your ICE Authority file with root permissions.

Try the following in a terminal session:

sudo chown $USER:$USER .ICEauthority
sudo chmod 0644 .ICEauthority
