after messing up my partition table quite badly and barely being able to rescue most of the /var data, I am facing the problem of wrong permissions and ownership. Well, this currently results in X failing to display any text (at least for most fonts), and several servers refusing to start up.
So, is there any way to restore the permissions of /var, at least for vital components? I am running a mostly up-to-date Debian Testing desktop system, getting some scripts from the net is not a problem.
Would a simple reconfigure of the respective packages do? I am fed up with random stabbing and producing more and more problems, which is why I figured I should ask this time
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
