Greetings Redlar! Welcome to Linux. I usually recommend to newbie's that they have an experienced user sit with them at their first install.
We all love Linux, but if your install goes bad and you are brand new, it sets you up for a lot of frustration. You are missing a lot of background
information from your post that will let us help you, but I am going to take a stab at it.
I'll answer the question you asked first, but I don't have time for a full answer, and I think your problems run deeper.
Every file and directory in linux has permissions. Certain users are allowed to read/write/execute every single file and folder.
A special user (root) can do anything. Ordinary users have control over their own files/directories but not those of other
users. It makes linux very secure. The "root" user is special and used to be a system administrator. Now that people use
linux at home, they are their own admin and know the root password, but after using root to modify your system, you should
remain a less privileged user for your everyday tasks. Somehow, Nautilus does not have write permissions on a directory it needs.
You can fix that using the chmod
commands ... but a newbie should not be doing this. Read on ... I think you are
really messed up.
Please understand that my guess is you probably should start over with
your installation from scratch.
First of all home directories.
Linux was designed to be a multiuser operating system (not like Windows ... but REALLY multiuser). Each users
settings are stored in the users "home" directory. Thus if you (Redlar) and your child (redlarino) are the two users
there should exist two directories.
All your configuration files (like .Nautilus) should reside in your home directory, thus your error message should have read
Nautilus could not create the required folder:"/home/Redlar/.Nautilus"
The message you quote suggests, that when you were told to create a user you decided to call your user
This is a really weird name for a user, and if you really put a comma and a slash in the user name, it may have confused Linux. If this is what you did, you
were probably trying to name your computer, not your user. Also, despite what they do in the Windows and Mac world, don't go putting punctuation and spaces into
file names (at least not till your computer works right.)
Anyway, maybe Fedora does something weird. I used Red Hat back in 2002-2004, and it did not do anything so strange back then. My guess is you are set up
completely wrong and that many many things do not work. I recommend starting over. Wipe out the disk and start fresh. Make a user called redlar.
Sit with a buddy and get it running right.
If I am wrong and your system mostly works, then please tell us the following:
1) Can you get to a GUI or are you stuck at the command line?
2) From a command line, type pwd
and post the result.
3) From a command line, type ls -l /home
and post the result.
Get ready for a long slog ... but you'll learn a lot on the way. Don't run screaming, but I do hope you have resources to help you in person besides
just the online community. We excel at specific problems once a certain level of knowledge is reached, but again, it's tough for a newbie if you don't
have a running installation already. (I recommend Ubuntu to newbies by the way, but maybe you are using fedora because your helper knows it better.
Whatever your helper knows well, that's the distro to start with. If you have no helper ... use Ubuntu ... it's the nooby friendliest distro!!)
