When I lock session , it won't accept my password (that is - it tells me it's wrong). I can not log in back.
Any ideas? I'm very sure that I enter the right password.

This is what fixed it for me:

As root:

chown root.root `which kcheckpass`
chmod 4755 `which kcheckpass`

See: ... epted.html ... #post55541

chmod 4755 `which kcheckpass`
was all it took, or: chmod 4755 $(which kcheckpass)

More on the 4 part: ... e-of-file/
and from onlamp: ... asics.html

This is a new one for me, I've never seen this before, using ls, this is the difference before and after:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11220 2008-07-13 15:29 /usr/bin/kcheckpass
run chmod 4755 $(which kcheckpass)
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 11220 2008-07-13 15:29 /usr/bin/kcheckpass

Note the rwx becomes rws
