Question Dolphin in Kubuntu reports error when closing


When I close the dolphin file manager in Kubuntu 7.10, I consistently get this error message:

"Unable to save bookmarks in /home/jon/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin/bookmarks.xml. Reported error was: Permission denied. This error message will only be shown once. The cause of the error needs to be fixed as quickly as possible, which is most likely a full hard drive."


My hard drive is no where near full, so I'm assuming it is a permissions issue. How and where do I correct the permissions for dolphin.

Code:
/home/jon/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin/bookmarks.xml
Check the permissions of the whole chain of directories to make sure your user may at least write to and read from them. Is there already an existing bookmarks.html (and ~bookmarks.html) and what are their permissions?

JZL240I-U,

The permissions for the existing bookmark.xml file is as follows:

jon@jon-desktop:~/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin$ ls -l
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1126 2007-10-16 18:04 bookmarks.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1126 2007-10-16 18:04 bookmarks.xml.bak

If I understand this correctly the user doesn't have the right permissions to write to the file because it belongs to root. Right?

yep...
i had exactly the same problem....
seems to be a bug in 7.10!

just sudo chown <username> /home/<username>/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin/bookmarks.xml

that fixes the problem fine
