Issue running winecfg
« on: 17. April 2016, 05:00:13 »
This is a really noobish question but I'am unable to run wine. I'm using the KDE version of manjaro, with linux44 and with the latest system upgrade.

When I'm trying to run winecfg the following error is displayed:

wine: '/home/gabriel' is not owned by you, refusing to create a configuration directory there

It runs with
Code: [Select]
sudo winecfg but I'm aware it's a terrible idea, I tried using

Code: [Select]
sudo chown -R gabriel:gabriel /home/  and sudo chown -R gabriel:gabriel /home/gabriel/

but winecfg insists on the same error. When I check /home and /home/gabriel    the ownership is of root, and group root. under the permissions (using dolphin) I tried adding my user but it didn't work.

What can I do? D:

EDIT1: I'm using dual boot with Windows, /home is shared. (edit to add information)

delete .wine folder in your home you also have to chmod -R +rwx your files and folders

Just in case, I don't have a .wine folder in home. I tried with:

Code: [Select]
[gabriel@..... ~]$ chmod -R +rwx /home
[gabriel@..... ~]$ winecfg
wine: '/home/gabriel' is not owned by you, refusing to create a configuration directory there

I assumed -R would be enough but just in case

Code: [Select]
[gabriel@..... ~]$ chmod -R +rwx /home/gabriel
Didn't work either, sorry and thanks again.

EDIT: I'm I missing something of chmod?

ls -lha /home
ls -lha /home/gabriel

chmod and chown /home/gabriel, not /home. /home is supposed to be owned by root. Other users will have their home folders too, you are owning all of those. This is misuse of admin powers :P

 I used both chmod and chown on /home/gabriel too, but it didnt work, I mistyped on the second code sentence, I'll edit

All belongs to root and root group.

Please do as you are told. Run 'id' and paste the output. Can't help unless you share necessary info.

now give me the following
Code: [Select]
lsblk
parted -l
cat /etc/fstab
and point out which partition </dev/sdXY> contains your home directory.

/dev/sda4 is home partition, sda3 is / partition. I didn't create a swap partition

chown/chmod/file permissions mean nothing on an ntfs partition. No wonder they didn;t work for you.
In order to have read/write in ntfs replace
Code: [Select]
defaults,noatime with
Code: [Select]
rw,auto,noatime,uid=1000in fstab. Reboot for effect

edit: i did not intend to put noexec, copied from my own fstab.
