kde error




hi,
first i would like to apologize in advance for all the questions and stuff :S

wel here it is i'm getting this error upon kde startup it says
Quote:
kicker - KDialog (<--- that being the title of the dialog box)

Will not save configuartion.

Configuration file
"/home/FishBoy/.kde/share/config/kickerrc" not writable.

Please contact your system administrator.
so i went to that file in 'su' mode and i set the permissions on it to 774 but i'm still getting that error

and i'm also getting another message when i try to install firefox, i extracted the tar file and i moved the directory 'firefox-installer' to '/opt/firefox' and when i try to run it on su mode it tells me
Quote:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


(firefox-installer-bin:4605): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
i dont know what that means, but when i try to run it from my account it opens the setup windows for firefox but while installing it gave me a few errors

Quote:

Code:
 "/home/FishBoy/.kde/share/config/kickerrc"
is this file owned by fishboy or root??
also check the ownership of the dir leading to it........
make sure fishboy is owner of these....

the home directory 'FishBoy' is owned by my account not the root
ok so i changed all the permissions of the leading directories to '750' (rwxr-x---) is that what they're supposed to be??
oh but i own all the directories but the main file 'kickerrc' is owned by root :s
Quote:
-rwxrwxr-- 1 root root 552 2005-08-03 15:04 kickerrc
i hope that it's that that makes it work i'll try to restart the kde system after i finish doing the online update
