Corrupted Home


Whenever I click on home, it goes to a completely different file. This happens when I use the Taskbar, the "start applications" menu, and even when I delete the icon and replace it. How do I fix it to go to home?

Where does it go instead? It might be a case that there is a symbolic link which points /home/yourusername to somewhere else, though it'd be strange. Also, please post the output when you open up a terminal window and type this:

ls -l /home

(that's lowercase LS, space, dash lowercase L, space, slash home)

Your user config is probably messed up. Easiest way to fix this is to use whatever user config gui you have, and double check the /home directory name. It can be set to anything, so if it's set to windows, change it to the proper place.

If you're using kde, just manually browse to your home folder then select settings-save view profile-"filemanagement" then save it.
