usrmod on fedora 7 no gui


For some reason I am not able to log into my gui. It is giving me permission error on the .gnome2/accels directory. Yes I tried KDE as well and get the same thing only for KDE.

This is a fresh install and I tried chmod but to no avail. I am not a noob to linux but am to Fedora. I attempted to use usradd but it was not there to be used. Could someone tell me how to install usradd to create a new user account so that I can login. Or some other way of fixing my problem with permissions.

Roman

BTW I do have a man page for useradd

Useradd and usermod can only be run by root. Please provide more detailed info e.g. the exact error message you are getting, how you created the user etc. Out of curiosity, did you get a screen where you could create a user and configure your hardware the first time you ran Fedora?

I did get a screen to add users and I configure the firewall and such when I first rebooted from the dvd. My drive is partitioned into a ~7G / and ~13G /home. I did not format the /home partition and there was a /home/damon for the damon user name I created when I first reboot out of the DVD.

I was running as root and it was telling me "command not found"

Exact error when trying to log into gnome:

Users $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored.
(second error message)
localuser:damon being added to access control list
Can't save user-dirs.dirs
Could not create gnome accelerators directory '/home/damon/.gnome2/accels' :Permission denied

End Error messages

Hope that helps.

If you created a user called damon on your new Fedora installation, login to a terminal as root and do the following
Code:
#chown -R damon:damon /home/damon
After that try logging in as damon.

When you logged in as root, did you use "su"? If you used "su", then you will not have inherited roots path and thats why you got the command not found error. If you use "su -", then you will inherit roots path and be able to access all the commands in roots path.
