Saving personal user settings

It seems that whenever i try to save personal settings (Specifically with Opera and bbconf) it decides that i dont' have permission for my home directory. An example, is from running bbconf, this comes up and it loads the default from /usr blah blah blah:

Could not open config file: ~/.bbconf/config
Using internal defaults for plugin.

Could it be because i set a seperate partition as the /home directory?

Well, the mount mounts, and it's mounted with rw access (Taken from command "mount") The folders all look like they have permissions for the user. I ended up creating a new user and so far everything works except bbconf...trying to create the file that it's asking for, but i don't know where the "Internal defaults" file is located
