kde and ICEauthority fix

Installed XFCE and ICEauthority didn't like it.

When I logged out of XFCE and tried to log into KDE it wouldn't let me.

The following installation problem was detected while trying to start KDE:

No write access to '/home/myaccount/.ICEauthority'.

KDE is unable to start [OK]

was what it said to me.

Could not start ksmserver. Check your installation. [okay]

was another.

How did I fix it? Well, reinstalling ksmserver through kynaptic (and subsequently from the Kubuntu install CD) did nothing. This is what I had to do.

login to failsafe

sudo chown myaccount:myaccount /home/myaccount/.ICEauthority

-And all was better

Good music

Country Music Festival

No, it's not for me. The Merit Mountain Music Fest is going on at the moment, which wraps up Saturday night. My girlfriend is attending this weekend with some of her girl friends from work. Meanwhile, the Kelowna regatta is this weekend, so I have my own music festival to attend. One of the bands, The Bleeding Alarm, will be there in the park. I got to see them again during Wakefest this passed weekend.

Wakefest was pretty good. I was quite pleased with the Alexisonfire concert. I got to see The Bleeding Alarm, The Warriors, Comeback Kid and Alexisonfire. Saturday night I saw Blinded, Sweatshop Union and De La Soul. That was ok, but not as good as the night before, though it drew a larger crowd.

So hot

A laptop in the lap makes me a hot boy

And not in the attractive sense. This thing can heat up a room, maybe that's why my apartment has been so warm lately. I've been using my laptop at home more often than usual.

So I'm thinking of putting a Linux partition on my laptop, possibly this weekend. I've freed up ~40% of my drive, will defrag and run the installer. I'm thinking a 15Gb partition aught to be alright.

Small post, mostly to get this picture moved off the front page. It's run its course, time to bring something else up.
