so, I guess the subject says it all.
I was trying to change the permissions of a folder but was one directory off from where i thought i was and ran:
chmod -R 755 *
in / as root. I seem to have fixed most of the related problems (ssh gets a bit snippy if you make your private keys public)
But have still encountered a couple problems that i can't quite trackdown. Mainly, i use eclipse (I'd post a link but it seems i'm just not cool enough for that yet) for programming and it works fine when i run it as root, but crashes when i run normal. this is the main problem i am trying to fix.
So, is there a quick and easy (perhaps as quick and easy as what caused the problem
?) fix to reset all my permissions back to default?
