Accidentally Deleted Public Folder/$Home warning


While trying to "fix" one of the user accounts on my flash drive's Maya XFCE user accounts (accidentally deleted it's Public folder and any new folder I make under the same name lacks the profile icon other Public folders have, so I suppose it really isn't a real one). Now whenever I boot up or switch users, I get a box reading; "User's $Home/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. User's $Home directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users."

Any hints to this techie newbie how to remedy both situations? Thanks!

Re: Accidentally Deleted Public Folder/$Home warning

The Public folder thing is just aesthetics and you could probably fix by editing ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs

The second situation, while someone might answer you here, you may get better help in Mint's forum.
Probably that ~/.dmrc is owned by another user.
Login as root (or however you folks do with sudo) and run something like

chown user:user .dmrc

replacing 'user' with the one who should own the file.
