Few days ago my fc3 was perfect. Everything was working and life was good. Until I made this disaster typo in root mode:
in /home/user/-directory: "chown user .* -R"
Since then my normal users aren't able to start gnome.
Am I correct that .* refers only one step upward in tree-topology? Hope so...
I made some research about it and found out that in "troubleshooting mode" of X (you get only that one terminal... sorry not using fc3 with english language installed) gnome gives error messages like:
"not able to create /home/user/.gnome -directory" (it exists, file permissions ok)
"not able to create /home/user/.gnome2 -directory" (it exists, file permissiond ok)
and something about "/tmp/orbit-user- directory not permitted to this user..."
Well I checked all these file permissions and they seem to be ok.
In addition I added a new user, but isn't able to start gnome too!
Could somebody help! I don't want to use fc3 and gnome in root mode (that works).
