i am accessing my lab server, which is running Ubuntu 12.10, from my macbook pro. it was running ok, until i think i accidentally deleted some files while i was clearing out my home folder. since then, whenever i access the server, i have this error message:
i have read online somewhere that this is not a serious problem as it simply affects the display (the X server?) is that right?
warning: untrusted X11 forwarding setup failed: xauth key data not generated
warning: no xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding
if it is serious enough that i should correct it, can anyone tell me how to go about doing that? i have no root access.
