Gnome Desktop (two home folders two Trashcans)
I am very new to linux and recently installed Scientific Linux on an old machine.
I created a user called Shahin and everything was fine on the gnome desktop, I had a Home folder, Trash, Computer etc. after experimenting with linux for a while (SSH, remote desktop, X forwarding) I logged back on to the gnome desktop on the local machine and
I hade two folders
''Shahin's home'' and ''home''. ''Shahin's home'' opened /home/Shahin but it did not give me write premission for some folders which I previously had premmision for. ''home'' gave an error ''Couldn't find "/$HOME".''
even though HOME=/home/Shahin was set
there were also two trashcans one which had an icon with paper in (but was empty) and one which was empty (which I think was the real trash can since it had the 'empty trash' option when right clicked)
What is the likely cause of this and how can I avoid it in the future?
