    HELP!!


    ok when i try to boot linux i get to the login screen, type my username in and log in, when its loading it takes ages then says..

    No write access to $HOME directory (/home/jesse/)
    KDE is unable to start.

    then i have to restart, does any one know how i can be able to write to my /home/jesse/ folder again???

    open a konsole su to root
    Code:
    su
    password&#58; <enter root passward> enter
    then type
    Code:
    chmod 755 /home/jesse/
    and that should do it!

    if not please paste the output of
    Code:
    ls -al /
    and the output of
    Code:
    ls -al /home
    here
    so we can look at the ownership of your users directory

    crap i just noticed that you cant even get into kde.... so try logging into kde as root! root will not be in the list so just type it in then give the root password and that should start then continue above ^^^
