    No login possible on vsftpd

    I remember vsftpd was working on a previous release on my system but now I'm unlucky. local_enable=YES was already the default and I needed just to change write_enable to YES. But after restarting vsftpd and trying to login it fails:

    Code:
    sworddragon@ubuntu:~$ ftp localhost
    Connected to localhost.
    220 (vsFTPd 3.0.2)
    Name (localhost:sworddragon): sworddragon
    331 Please specify the password.
    Password:
    530 Login incorrect.
    Login failed.
    /var/log/vsftpd.log contains:

    Code:
    Thu Mar 21 09:00:33 2013 [pid 2] CONNECT: Client "127.0.0.1"
    Thu Mar 21 09:00:48 2013 [pid 1] [sworddragon] FAIL LOGIN: Client "127.0.0.1"
    I have even created a new user but this doesn't work too. Has somebody an idea?

    This file doesn't exist on my system. It seems I'm missing the related non-essential package. I'm using GDM as login manager and ecryptfs for my home directory if this helps.

    you need to narrow down that missing auth.log file (rsyslog)

    I have installed rsyslog and rebooted the system. Here is my /var/log/auth.log:

    Re: No login possible on vsftpd

    compared to your messages above, i've also the same first comment on my system (something new since a few days, but im using the gnome3-team ppa) about "dbus rejecting send message ..."
    cant say if that matter, i've not yet get such issue as yours.

    but then you get pam troubles: is it "dbus" related or "gdm" ? As your "sworddragon" user cant met pam requirement, maybe check the "users & groups" settings to see if sworddragon is activated

    I have looked with google about the last line and it seems it is a bug. I will check it later again and open a bugreport if needed.

    Re: No login possible on vsftpd

    When i get troubles, the first thing im doing is to clean the system as much as i can (clean/autoclean/autoremove/gtkorphan/bleachbit) and check for missing update/install (sudo apt-get install -f)
    then i do a reconfiguration after having closed the running apps :
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh -a

    As expected it hasn't worked. But I have now opened a bugreport: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...d/+bug/1160372

    I've seen your report, is it supposed to work without "sudo" ?
