.dmrc problem on login(SOLVED)

Postby indelible » Wed Jul 30, 2008 9:59 am

Hi guys.I have this annoying problem on login that says that the folder Home permissions must be set to user and talk about permission 644 for the .dmrc file in my Home.
I try sudo chown indy:indy /home/indy/.dmrc and chmod 644 /home/indy/.dmrc but the problem is not solved.
Any suggestions?

You can try:
restart to a recovery console (select the recovery mode option from the grub menu) then enter:

chmod 700 /home/<yourusername>
chmod 644 /home/<yourusername>/.dmrc
reboot now

good luck
