Unhappy Problem accessing Gnome like normal user


Hi folks,

I have a problem with Gnome 2.10. I'm using Arch 0.7...and the installation of gnome was very painless.

But everytime I try to access Gnome I have problems....

The pannels don't work and Nautilus crashes....the ony thing I see are three icons on desk....

I know that was not a good idea but I also tried to access like root....and whatta surprise !!!

Gnome works perfectly....

Why Gnome works if I log like root and kicks my normal user's ass?

Supose there are some filepermision problems...but Gnome has so many files and so many directories....and I'm going sick...

Does someone had similar problem? If does how can I procede to solve it?

Thanks a loooooot !!!!

1.goto your user dir (from terminal or nautilus if its workng)

3. relogin

Jsut cheack the directory permission of tmp.
It should be drwxrwxrwt
If NOT then You can set it by chmod 7771 /tmp as a root

I tried both but /tmp is ok and removing directories doesn't solve the problem....Gnome is from Arch distro....

Excuse me r_x,
