[SOLVED] Exaile Only Runs in Root
ASUS Pro50n series Laptop
Distro: Arch Linux
I've just installed Exaile media player via pacman and I try and run it, nothing happens. I run it from the terminal and get the error:
I looked in the log file stated above and it says nothing.
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/scott/.config/exaile/exaile.log'
I can however, run exaile under root with "sudo exaile" and it runs fine then. Does anyone know why this is happening?
I had a similar problem with Emesene messenger, but couldn't find anything on any forums so I just used Empathy IM Client instead.
*EDIT* It appears that its possibly something to do with the read/write permissions relating to ~/.config/ folder... because it does the same with banshee also, and the errors relate to permission denied to all folders within ~/.config/ whereas in root it can read and write and access this folder and the config files within fine. Can anyone tell me how I can try changing the privileges relating to this folder?
