I had this problem with only the status 256 error being displayed. After trying everything suggested in every forum I just ended up reinstalling Ubuntu 10.04 and now it works fine.
I think the best first step is to try and reinstall Linux and maybe do something different during setup. (For instance I was running a dual boot and this time I manually partitioned the drive instead of letting the disc auto partition. And I also used a different password.) If the problem still persists I suggest you try the other suggestions floating out there like the chmod thing. Also FYI, terminal can be reached by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 at login screen.
