About the other issue as a user, it seems you screwed up something with your file permissions, make sure that everything in your home directory belongs to you and has proper permissions, to do this in a terminal, do this :
sudo chown edgar:edgar -R /home/edgar
sudo chmod u+rwX -R /home/edgar
It should in theory fix it.. the problem with amsn as a user is that it can't read/write your /home/edge/.amsn directory for some reason because the permission is denied, so it means something played with your file permissions in there, which is not a good thing to happen..
i hope that helps.
Woo, it worked! Had to create a new group under my name for that command to work though.
Only thing is, it takes forever for amsn to log in, not sure if thats normal or not.
thank you :3
One last thing, unrelated to this topic, how would I go about getting sound to work o_O; seems sound never works in amsn for the moment.
Hmm, you know what, I'll start a new thread for the sound issue, since its a different issue then what the thread was focused on. :/
