downloading problem


When i first installed mandrake i was able to download on my own accouunt and now i think i might have changed something because i cant download on my own account anymore. I can only download files on my computer using root. Can anyone please tell me how to configure it back to the way it was.

that could be a dozen things.. how can we say what you need to do to revert whatever it was if we don't know what you did?? let's try and get some useful details....

1) exact steps to reproduce this, including what app this is, how you load it, who you load it as...

2) "ls -l" output from the target directory

3) "ls -l" output from the parent directory

I cant remember what i did. Everytime i try to download on my account it brings up save as and then it looks like it going to start downloading but it doesn't. Then when i go to my root account it and try downloading the exact same file. It works.

I didn't understand what you told me to try. I can install stuff on my account but i cant download. It shows the download screen and everything, it doesnt say that permission is denied or anything. It just doesnt start receiving or downloading the file.

Where are you trying to save the file, maybe you dont have permissions for saving the file where you are trying to do so.
