    I can however access anything outside the home directory in the command line or using konsole (again as normal user) conditionally. I i give the path e.g. cd /etc/samba or even ls it will go there, however if i do something like "ls /" (without quotes and as normal user), it gives Permission denied.

    Root obviously has no problems like that.

    I have allowed others to be able to read from the root partition as this shows:
    Code:
    Mercury ~ # ls -l /
    total 27

    Edit:::
    Solved, chmod 755 / did the trick.

    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
