$HOME/.dmrc error message on Ubuntu 7.04

Windows pop up “$HOME/.dmrc Error Message“ appear when Ubuntu 7.04 restarted. To solve the problem, you should open a terminal ( Application -> Accessories -> Terminal), then type:

sudo chown –R [username] /home/[username]

sudo chmod –R 755 /home/[username]

sudo chown [username] $HOME/.dmrc

sudo chmod 644 $home/.dmrc

Restart machine, the error popup will be disappear.

    This is nice of you to post this solution.

    Though: I have to tell that this solution is not working for me, as I think that the problem is in $HOME itself, which is directing to “/” instead of to “/home/username/”, I think (not sure!)

    If it interests you, or you think you might help, check this thread here:
