Fusion Linux error message

I am playing with Fusion 14 - a rather strange beast. I appear to have a mix of Gnome and (what ever else it is fused to) but more on that in another post.

I have an error dialog popping up to the effect
Configuration file "/home/ken/.kde/share/config/ksysguardrc" not writable. Please contact your system administrator.
Well the system administrator is me So I asked myself if I had permission to the file
[ken@taylor12 config]$ ls ksys* -la
-rw-------. 1 ken ken 302 May 28 11:23 ksysguardrc
and I do. I can also write to the directory containing the file.

Any thoughts or advise? I am not running Kde so I am not sure why something is trying to deal with Kde configuration.

Check every piece of the path to /home/ken/.kde/share/config/ksysguardrc for correct ownership and modes. /home, /home/ken, etc. Though by virtue of you being CD'd to /home/ken/.kde/share/config/ I guess they're OK.

Is your home directory an NFS or other network mount?

Thanks AlucardZero,

The whole install is on an old hard drive which I plugged in just to give Fusion a try. I just installed a whole bunch of updates and now the thing will not boot. I may just reinstall the whole mess and try it again.
