Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.


Hi, I have installed 8.04 on a number of machines both real and virtual (VMWare). I am in the UK and use british keyboards.

I keep getting errors after a few days that means I cannot login.

I try to login and get a message

“Your session only lasted 10 seconds…”

~/.xsession-errors says…

“/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setip…
Setting IM through im-switch for locale=en_GB
Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.
mkdtemp: private socket dir: Permission denied”

I can only login to a safe terminal session.

Any ideas anyone?

chmod 777 /tmp

sudo chmod 1777 /tmp
