alrighty here is the thing.
As with most nnewb's I am curious and always trying new things.
I have been playing with ownership and permissions and in the process have lost rights to all /home folders respectively for my users.
I am getting the error:
There was an error settuping up inter-process communications for KDE.
The message returned by the system was:
Could not read Network Connection List.
Please check that DCOPserver program is running.
I have tried:
chmod -R +w /home/*username
removing one file: /root/.ICEauthority
su -c "chown $WHO:users /home/$WHO/.ICEauthority" exit where $WHO is the user
Currently I can login as root and have no issues with KDE.
When in a root shell and su to my main account 'thanotos' to try and view permissions that the user has, this is the return
root@stealth:/home/windows# su thanotos
bash: /home/thanotos/.bashrc: Permission denied
bash: cd: /home/thanotos: Permission denied
So all that I know for sure is that I do not have permissions for any of my users other than root. Nor can I change them back.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I really dont want to remove and readd users.
