[SOLVED] ~/.kde4/share/config/knotifyrc not writable

Post#1 by JKostaRibeiro » 02 Aug 2014, 23:04

Hi!

When I try to boot Porteus from USB I get this error message: /home/guest/.kde4/share/config/knotifyrc was not writable. Please contact your system administrator.

Anyone can help?

How did you write Porteus to the USB drive? Can you rewrite it? Is there a read/write switch on the USB drive? Is it in the Read only position?

probably knotifyrc got root's permissions somehow. you may fix that with running following command as root:

Code: Select all

chown 1000:1000 -R /home/guest
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

i had this happen when i experimented with moving my /changes folder to a different partition. i used root login to do it and i think that made some of the resulting files get inherited by root.
