permissions help / fedora 6


Hi all I am running fedora 6- x86_64

I installed freevo 1.6.2
I screwed up and chmod 777 /usr
now when I use freevo I get these error:

error caching image /usr/share/freevo/icons/themes/Noia/mimetypes/folder.png
error caching image /usr/share/freevo/icons/themes/Noia/mimetypes/folder.png
Unknown Problem while loading image thumb:///usr/share/freevo/icons/themes/Noia/mimetypes/folder.png

suggestions or ideas
thanks

You can restore the default permissions for a package with "rpm --setperms <package name>". To reset permissions for everything Fedora installed run (as root) "rpm --setperms -a". There is also "--setugids" for user/group ownerships.

hello and thanks for responding

I tryed the cmd:
rpm --setperms -a

it ran for awhile with alot of these errors:

chmod: cannot access `/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/encodings.dir': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/fonts.cache-1': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/fonts.cache-2': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/fonts.cache-3': No such file or directory

Errors on files like fonts.cache you can ignore. An RPM has to list all the files it can ever install, even if they don't always exist on all systems.

It may be that your error is unrelated to the permissions.

How did you install freevo?

Can you view the file with another program
(e.g. "eog /usr/share/freevo/icons/themes/Noia/mimetypes/folder.png")?

I don't know exactly what freevo does to create thumbnails, sorry.
