When I login I get tons and tons of errors logging into gnome.

also if i click on a program like firefox it says the program is not installed

if i login as a differnt user it works fine

is there a way to rebuild the gnome files for a user or some other way to resolve this problem?

Thanks!

Could you give some examples of these errors?

Is this other user similar to the broken one? You could copy most of the config files over to the broken one and run
chown -R user:user /home/user where user is your user name.

i fixed it by just renaming the folder then logging back in and moving over the apps config and other files. everything is back to normal now.

thanks!
