Login failed: Local user WULF not found

Post by WULF »

Hi all,

I have problems with my player authentication (to play on some servers.....). The problem is quiet intersting:

Computer 1: Windows -> Login works
Computer 2: Linux (Ubuntu 14 - since today morning) -> Login failed

I had the same Problem some years ago as I swiched to a new computer with another operating system (because of that i have two accounts in here -> Hype & WULF....).

Can someone help me?

P.S.: I tried all possible combinations like WULF / [email protected] / [email protected]Forums - and I am able to login in here.......

Besr regards,
WULF

That's a weird one.
I was gonna suggest logging out and in from here, but since you've had that account for a year+, I'm guessing you've done that many a times.

Your username is definitely [email protected]
Maybe try changing your password and then log back in here first before you try in game.
Only thing I can suggest, or you can wait on someone that has a clue :?

Was there a recent package update? I know Ubuntu is getting ready for the next LTS release. Perhaps something was overwritten? Has login ever worked on that Ubuntu machine? Maybe go into you user.cfg file and make sure you have read/write access, and delete the PASSWORD entries and start over?

Hi Sinewav,

The login has never worked on this machine (new installed).
Maybe go into you user.cfg file and make sure you have read/write access, and delete the PASSWORD entries and start over?
I found this file and I have all access privileges. I am not 100% sure which string u mean?

-> There is a row with the string "PASSWORD" then "a lot of numbers" then "a string with some special characters" then "[email protected]"


Btw.: I started armegetron from the console as root and the login dont worked, too...

Best regards,
WULF

Do you mean you can login with it on some servers but not on others, or do you mean when you're logging into servers that specifically need authentication?
I ask because if it does let you login on some servers then that changes the whole problem.

Hi,

i mean that a cant login on all servers. On some I can play because there is no authentication needed.

Best regards,

That error message means you are attempting to log in to an account local to the server you are connected to. Use /login [email protected] and tell us what error comes up if any.

Hi Epsy,

Login failed, reason: Local user [email protected] not found.

Are you typing /login and entering your login details in the login prompt? If so, don't.

Enter this into your chat when you connect to a server, and enter your password when it prompts you to, and you'll be fine.

Hi Renegade,

yes, it is the same procedure as on windows (on windows it works fine).

I think it is a different problem (playerconfig):

-> hide global id was set off
-> At global id was nothing written down
-> Auto login was set to off


After this changings (set them to on and wrote down my id) the login works.

!! But after trying to connect after some time (restart of the computer) I typed in the wrong password and
there came the same error (sure). So, I tried it with the correct password and it wont work again.

It seems that the server gives me just one chance to type in the correct password, if it is wrong I have to restart the game and try it again......

Can this be true?

Hello Wolf,

there is an important difference:

Wolf
WULF

But we have a lot together :D

P.S.: In germany there is a saga about the Wolfgaenger's (warriors in wolfskins).
They were fighting together but looking more or less the same :wink:

WULF

It seems that the server gives me just one chance to type in the correct password, if it is wrong I have to restart the game and try it later again......
The problem (login failed) ist still existing on some servers (I am a bit afraid that I can not play the ladle because of that).

How fast is the syncronisation regarding the gameservers and this homepage?

One additional information:
I have mostly problems with the connection to the master server (no maser server available) so the server list is not regularly refreshed.
-> Contains the server list a reference to the login informations (maybe stupid question)?

It would be great if someone can (try to) help me with this problem.

Best regards,
WULF
