Winex Error


Okay, I installed winex a few days ago and it has been working fine up until today when I got this error:

wine: '/home/brad/.wine/wineserver-slack' must not be accessible by other users

after which winex quits.
So what happened?

Is '/home/brad/.wine/wineserver-slack' accessible by other users?

Yeah, I tried the chmod and chown stuff but still no dice.

EDIT: I just needed to delete the folder.
