Login Error "user's home/.dmrc file is being ignored."

Asked by Yanick

When I log in I get the following error message...

"user's home/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and have 644 permissions. user's home directory must be owned by user and not writable by other user's"

Do not know what steps to take to remedy this error.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks. :-)

Hi Wiloc

I'm having same problem but above is not working, I'm real new to Linux.

After I have logged in do I go to terminal via applications then type 'sudo chmod 644' then my password ?
