    Exclamation /usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with error status 256

    I hope someone can help out:

    after upgrading to ubuntu 8.10 64 platform when I login I get this error:

    /usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with error status 256

    and afterwards nothing happens...

    I created another user on the command-line and the new user logs in w/o a problem, but my old user with all my preferences, emails etc. stays locked out

    Some setting got messed up badly.

    I'd copy over your data to the new user.

    Has anyone figured out what the actual problem is? I get this message every time I start up, but after I click through, I don't seem to have any further symptoms.

    However, my problem is NOT the permissions problem identified here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...t=sanity-check

    Any ideas?

    Try executing

    /usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2
    In the terminal. Does it say anything?

    Nope. It doesn't say anything. How can I find out what the error is? Does anyone know what error status code 256 implies?

    I'm not sure. I looked at the gconf-sanity-check.c file, and it does not return 256 anywhere.

    I did this this FAQ though, see the "Some other weird thing is wrong with my gconf!!!" section.

    After we solve this, a bug report is definitely due.

    So can anyone explain chmod 1777 /tmp to me? I have the error when booting up 9.10, and im a noob. Maybe this will help. Im desperate to get this done NOW as I have been at this for days. I don't have internet other than my p.o.s. Cell phone, so can anyone help? What do I do?
    Hi, my name is Crowded, and I'm a penguin.
