Re: CDE Login Error

Shalom,

Check permissions on the .dc folders in the user home directoy, make sure the user owns them and/or has write permission.

It is not good for these folders or files within to be owned by root.

".dc"? Close?

ls -ld ~/.dt
ls -l ~/.dt

(And so on.)

As "Check disk space and/or permissions"
might suggest, a full file system could cause
this sort of problem, too.

Re: CDE Login Error

Permission for all .dt folder are same given below:

drwxr-xr-x 7 jafar HP-OS 8192 Jan 25 15:40 /home/jafar/.dt
drwxr-xr-x 7 krishna HP-OS 8192 Jan 25 22:29 /home/krishna/.dt
drwxr-xr-x 7 nikhil HP-OS 8192 Jan 25 15:30 /home/nikhil/.dt
drwxr-xr-x 7 vaibhav HP-OS 8192 Jan 25 15:29 /home/vaibhav/.dt

And file system usage is given as under:

Re: CDE Login Error

You need to recursively check the ownership of the contents of the .dt directory.

Re: CDE Login Error

I had checked the ownerdhip of the contents of .dt directory and didn't find any difference in that as given in the output below:
