Ok, I tryed the "chmod 777 /urs/bin/kppp" while and root user.[list=1][*]Logged as "root"[*]did chmod 777 /urs/bin/kppp in a terminal [*]did chmod 777 /home/mozilla/firefox/firefox[*]quit terminal[*]Logged out[*]Logged in as "me"[*]Found kppp in /usr/bin folder[*]Made a sybomlic link to my desktop[*]Next found Firefox brower program[*]Made a sybomic link on my desktop[*]Double clicked on the link for Kppp[*]It returned "Enter root password"[*] Also got an erro when I canceled " Could not start KDEinit"[*]Next tryed Firefox[*]Browser did open up
I checked the properties for both KPPP and Firefox
Kppp: owner= root, group=root Linked to consolehelper
Firefox= owner=64255 group=11407
So I was able to get one out of two.
I looked for the "man chmod" there was information there but I did not see any that would tell me what to do next.
So where did I screw up? Any ideas what to do next? Am I looking in the right places?
