Title: Permissions issue (Solved)
Post by: Brotherred on February 15, 2020, 01:26:20 am
I just finished setting up this Thinkpad R60. And now for some reason it will not boot or log in. It goes to blank screen after the progress boot up completes during start up.

Please help.

Post edit:
It appears that Peppermint started reading the clock incorrectly after I corrupted the permissions.

Sudo is also locked out from both users at the prompt.

I can log in as either user. But neither user is able to use sudo.

I realize now that I was attempting to modify a user's desktop permissions and locked both users out.

I changed the permissions in Gnome. I was following some Ubuntu instructions in limiting user privileges to change the desktop.

The prompt/terminal history only shows sudo -I

in

/usr/bin/gnome

I started second command. But realized that it was not what I wanted so and closed the terminal. I started this thread talking about the hardware clock because that is what the error messages were telling me at the time.
