sudo: unable to change to sudoers gid: Operation not permitted sudo: setresuid() [0,
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2012
I'm an Ubuntu 12.04 user.
Today when I turned on my computer, I got the following message upon login:
"Could not update ICEauthority file /home/user/.ICEauthority"
I've been searching around how can I fix it, but still haven't found the solution.
According to what I read, the most probable reason for this error has to do something the installation of Veetle, because this is the only thing that changed before I got this message.
I found that using the sudo chown command should fix the problem, but it's not working for me, as any sudo I mean to do, I get the following message:
sudo: unable to change to sudoers gid: Operation not permitted
sudo: setresuid() [0, 0, 0] -> [118, -1, -1]: Operation not permitted
So, any ideas on how to fix it??? I'm kind of desperate here.
[SOLVED] chroot error "cannot change root directory to /jail: Operation not permitted"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 18, 2011
I am trying to create a jailed shell for a user Don($UID '500') using my own method(I don't want to use any ready-made "jailkit"). The user don should get a home directory /jail/don instead of /home/don when he login via SSH (So that he will not able to see any other files/directories on the system)
This is what I have done.
Operation not Permitted, can't change my MTU.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2009
I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my computer, rather different from Windows that's for certain.
Anyhow, my computer is super slow, with lots interruptions and such. Seems the MTU is set to a ridiculously low level by default. I have tried altering the MTU based upon what my research has told me, yet when I try to change it, the damn terminal service window says "Operation not permitted. Below is as copy of the terminal log, and all the info about my connection. If anyone can tell me how to bypass this problem and alter the MTU, which is set super low by default, I'd sure appreciate it.
Also had another command I tried, which said I "don't have permission" or some such nonsense. Anyhow, the log is below.

How to open sudoers file if operation not permitted
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 14, 2014
Hello, I'm a newbie Ubuntu user. I use Lubuntu desktop 14.04.1 64-bit as an guest OS on VMware Workstation.
I wrongly operate an tutorial to modify the usermod group. In the process, I execute this command:
sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -G svn andromeda
sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -G svn marc
andromeda is my default user and marc is my second user. Apparently, since then, I can't access or doing anything with sudo command. The terminal output is:
andromeda is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
I have Googling and search the absolute way to fix it but the main and crudest issue is: I still can't open the sudoers file using gksu or sudo (which highly impossible). This page seems can help me but I still don't understand how to do that correctly while I can't open sudoers file or Root Terminal.
Is there any way to open sudoers file while the operation wasn't permitted?
Anyone can help me here?
Sorry for my bad english, bad question or mistakes. Any help

When I delete the .tmp folder manually the app runs without errors.

Hi there, I'm fairly new to all this Linux business, Ubuntu doubly so, so I hope this is the right place to post this.
Whenever I try to log on, I think it does actually log me in, but then instantly logs me out again, dumping me back at the log in screen. This is what it says:

[SOLVED] Cannot remove file "Operation not permitted"
- date: October 4, 2010
I've been trying to remove a folder, but a file residing within this folder is not allowing me to.
I've, also, tried removing the file manually to no avail:
mnt]# rm -rf img-mnt
rm: cannot remove `img-mnt/.journal': Operation not permitted
mnt]# cd img-mnt/
img-mnt]# rm -f .journal
rm: cannot remove `.journal': Operation not permitted
img-mnt]# ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Oct 4 14:41 .
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Oct 4 17:06 ..
-rw------- 1 root root 134217728 Oct 4 14:41 .journal
I've tried changing the permissions/ownership on the file, but same result:
img-mnt]# chmod 777 .journal
chmod: changing permissions of `.journal': Operation not permitted
img-mnt]# chown root:root .journal
chown: changing ownership of `.journal': Operation not permitted
Also, this is not a mounted drive, even though it shows up under the /mn
