Hi,
I mistakingly removed my gcloud config, and token/cookies on my desktop. Private user here;

Now, I can't `gcloud auth login` anymore with my default gmail account.
I got an error at the last step of authentification "an error occured".

I have to use the default account for each project. This is annoying.

Why ?  Why do I do wrong ? Is it a feature ?

Thanks

Previously, I had a free Google Workspace account, and that's why it might have worked.
Since, free Google Workspace was ended, I terminated that account. It was linked to my main gmail address.

If I try to follow the tutorial in the link you gave, I have to login with an admin account. It seems I don't have any, do I?

Please ask your admin to perform those steps.

I don't have an admin at end. I odn't have any admin t perform those steps.

Because like I said, I am just a lambda user of Google App Engine (free-tier mostly). meaning, no entreprise or organisation, just me.

Out of dispair and boredom, I tried a few things, and finally I just changed the language in the login page where you accept the Google Cloud SDK permissions. I changed it to english (UK);

I was, then, instantaltly logged in.

WTF !
