    sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    Hello,
    I turned my computer to find a window: could not update ICEauthority file/home/. ICEauthority

    I opened a console and tried : sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    It did its dance and finished with the word: master@mastermind:ñ$ (the ñ doesn´t have the n, just the wavy line.)

    I don´t know what to do next...

    Can anyone help me ?

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    Which version (12.04 LTS,12.10 or some other version) are you running?

    Have you updated your installed version? Run these command to update and try to install gnome-session again

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    and if some packages are held back
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    ok, thank you.
    I did that, then repeated the re install order. I was then told that certain things were no longer necesary, and that I should un install those things. Which I did. It then asked if I had the authority to do this, and I replied yes.
    II now have an unending vertyical line of yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy´s going udown the left side of the screen !

    WHAT NOW ?

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    Which version (12.04 LTS,12.10 or some other version) are you running?

    And which flavour (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, ...)?

    I don't understand what is happening. Press ctrl + c to stop that! And try again with your original command

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    Ok, I´m back. Thanks.
    I did the original command again, and I am back where I was. It says that there are no updates, no new installations, nothing top remove amd 15 not updated.
    Then it says master@mastermind:~$

    What now ?!

    Maybe your version of Ubuntu has passed end-of-life. Maybe it is still experimental. That is why I'm asking for the version number. Please post the output of this command!
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    What happens if you run this command?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    If still no go, try according to this list of commands originally posted by oldfred

    Code:
    # This will reinstall if not current. (from my chroot procedure which does not have sudo on every line,
    # so use the sudo -i first).
     
    #if not chroot use: sudo -i
    
    #houseclean
    apt-get autoclean # only removes files that cannot be downloaded anymore (obsolete)
    apt-get clean
    
    #refresh
    apt-get update #resync package index
    apt-get upgrade #newest versions of all packages, update must be run first
    
    #would upgrade you to the latest kernel in the repositories
    #dist-upgrade is also able to remove existing packages if required
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    
    # fix Broken packages -f 
    sudo apt-get -f install
    dpkg --configure -a

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    It's OK, all flavours of this version are supported. There is some other error. Please try according to that list of commands by oldfred in my previous post. Put sudo before each command (or even sudo -i as oldfred suggests).
