File is being ignored. pllleassse help fast

When I try to log in, It says "User's $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored. This Prevents The default session and Language from being saved. File Should be owned by user and have 644 permissions. User's $HOME Directory must be owned by user and net writable by other users."

Then it says "Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself, this could mean there is some installation problem or that you may be out of disk space. Try Logging in with one of the failsafe sessions to see if you can fix this problem. (process:5498) : Gtk-Warning **: This process is currently running setuid or setgid. This is not a supported use of GTK+. You must create a helper program instead. For further details, see:

(x-setup-manager :5495) : libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Unable to create ~/.gnome2 directory: Permission denied
Could not create per-user gnome configuration directory ´/home/apul/.gnome2':permission denied

I tried to install gtk+, I wasn't sure what I was doing. I've tried fixing it on failsafe terminal, but I wouldn't know where to start. I haven't had linux for long and don't know how to work it really. So if you could tell me step by step how to fix this it would be great.

Thanks

The permissions have been changed in your /home folder somehow. Assuming you can boot to the desktop, open a terminal and execute
Code: Select all
sudo chmod 644 .dmrc


This should restore permissions. If you can't get to the desktop, just boot in to recovery mode, log in, and do it there.

The password will not show up when you are typing it. Just type it in and hit enter. It sounds like you might have some more permission problems. That usually fixes it. Try the commands from this link:
