    configuration om KDE as non-root


    Hi there!
    I was wondering how to make normal users in KDE able to configure their desktop, menu items etc. I do have root access. As a normal user, you cant start the control panel och change the desktop via the right-mouse-button-menu. The programs wont start.
    I reckon its something about file permissions.
    I have asked a friend but he sais that he able to change all this as a normal user without changing anything..

    Thank you

    Regards Oscar

    You should, of course, be able to change that without being root, since it's stored in your home dir. What distribution do you use?

    ohh.sorry..

    I use Slackware 8.1 - there is a directory called .kde and .kderc in the users home directory and I reckon that those are the ones how should be altered in some way..

    Check so that they aren't owned by root (not that I know why they'd be, but anyway).
