Adding user permissions


I have a question (duh). How the heck do I add user permissions in mandrake 9.1? I got into userdrake the first time that I tried then added the user that i was logged in as all the possible groupes on the right hand side (bad idea). Now when I click on the userdrake icon it gives me the error: "could not lock lib, either /etc/ptmp or /etc/gtmp exist". I tried to delete all the text inside those files but that didn't work, any suggestions?

Welcome to LQ.

It doesn't matter about the content - it is the fact they "exist".

It means they are there - ie they "exist" as in you an I "exist"

Try deleting them completely.
