Hello all, attempted to boot up my Mint laptop and received this message:  could not update ICEauthority and then could not log in to my system.  I did some research about the issue but could not find anything that seemed to fit.  I did boot into a live USB MX16, and did remove the ICEauthority file from my home folder, but it continues with the same message.  I am in now...somehow, and don't want to shut it down or reboot until I can fix this, any and all suggestions are very welcome.

Thanks, Scott

Do you have Timeshift ?   If so restore to a time when everything was ok.

Condobloke,  I guess I could do that, but it happened once, I am only "assuming" that it could/would happen again, and I don't want to get caught in an endless circle..  But thanks for the suggestion, and I did forget about that choice.

Found solution via another forum;  it ended up being a bug in the kernel I was using.  Just had to roll back kernel to an earlier version.   Hope this helps anyone who may be having same issue for same reason.

Thanks, Scott
