Post $HOME issue


Whenever I log in this is displayed, how do I fix it?

Quote:
User's $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and have 644 permissions. User's $HOME directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users.
Thanks.

To solve the problem, you should open a terminal ( Application -> Accessories -> Terminal), then type:

sudo chown –R [username] /home/[username]

sudo chmod –R 755 /home/[username]

sudo chown [username] $HOME/.dmrc

sudo chmod 644 $home/.dmrc

Restart machine, the error popup will be disappear.

no need to restart. Just log out and back in to verify.
Or better yet, open a second connection to the same machine, just in case you typo'd something and can't log back in.

All at once or one at a time?
