Lost "Home"


I've lost the ability to view files via "home". I click it and it does nothing. Checked properties and the permissions etc. are ok. I've been in the software section seeing what I could remove, could I have removed something that is causing this?

same thing. i have found that if i log out of the GUI i can get access to that file in the GUI. otherwise i just open up a councel and cd /home/username to access what i need to access.

just as fast IMHO so im not worried about it.

if you really much have the GUI access to your home folder, then rest X by ctrl+alt+backspace or just log out of your GUI. both should do it.

Try opening konqueror directly, without using home(type "konqueror --profile filemanagement") and see if you can access your home.
When you say it does nothing do you mean that the program doesn't even open?
I haven't ever had that problem though.
If the command that I gave doesn't work then run it in a terminal and post the results.

It works through Konquerer but it doesn't open from the desktop, it starts and quits immediately.

Right click on the desktop icon, application tab, command. The command should be kfmclient openProfile filemanagement
but
put this command instead: konqueror --profile filemanagement

Thanks for your help. I aborted the project and bought "Damn Small Linux" instead. The old machine wasn't working out.
