Login/posting not working on Linux

6 replies 222 views Edited Mar 11, 2013

Alright, so I've used both Chromium and Firefox (running on Ubuntu Linux), and logging into the forum is not working. I've even tried switching the user agents, etc, and nothing works.

 

The only reason I'm able to post on there now is that I've setup the exact same version of Firefox (except the Windows version) running under WINE.

 

I've cleared cookies, profiles, tried temporary profiles, and still no luck.

 

Thanks in advance.

What's the response you're given when the login attempt fails?  It should be in a yellow box within the SEN login frame, above the field in which you enter your email address.

It either:

 

- Reloads the login page, again, and I get trapped in a never-ending cycle

 

or

 

- Redirects to the forum, where I remain logged out

 

No response is given when the login attempt fails.

 

Thank you for your quick response, Tempest_Fire!

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll send this along to the right folks.

 

In addition, if anyone else on a Linux box has this problem, can you please reply to this thread with your experience?

 

Thanks

Just tried logging in again. Still isn't working on Chromium nor Firefox. I now recieve this message on Chromium:

 


Some services on PlayStation.com may be unavailable due to the phased restoration of PlayStation®Network.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to restore all services shortly

Turned out some of the packages responsible for cookie management and SSL were broken. Fixed now. This is solved Smiley Happy
