Accidentially Deleted Public Folder/$Home warning

Postby jimwg on Fri Oct 19, 2012 8:27 pm


While trying to "fix" one of the user accounts on my flash drive's Maya XFCE user accounts (accidentally deleted it's Public folder and any new folder I make under the same name lacks the profile icon other Public folders have, so I suppose it really isn't a real one). Now whenever I boot up or switch users, I get a box reading; "User's $Home/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. User's $Home directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users."

Any hints how to remedy both situations? Thanks!
