Cannot run call of duty as regular user

Hello there
I just Installed Call of Duty with cedega and the loki installers, it runs so great as root, but as regular user when I try to start I get an error that says
Can not write a file
Probably the disk is full
Any ideas?

You might want to check that the file it is trying to write to has the appropriate permissions. Maybe the copy of the file in the root directory is writeable, but the config file in the home directory isn't. I don't really use cedega too much yet, so I don't have any idea how it works, but I'm guessing that this would be the problem.

Is there a ".cedega", ".winex" or similar directory in your home folder? Check that it's writeable, and that the files inside are writeable too.
