Re: [K12OSN] Error User's $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored?

I found some information in my notes that might help you with this.
Try editing /etc/gdm/custom.conf and then add the following line to the "[security]"


Then restart GDM by either rebooting or by running "gdm-restart" (which will kick people off).

I hope this helps.

Does any one know how to fix the error "User's

default session and language from being saved. File
should be owned by user and have 644 permission.
User's $HOME directory must be owned by user and not
writable by ohters."

This showed up when I login as root at the server
console. I looked at /root and found it was set to
nobody:nobody so I did a chown -R root:root /root but
this did not remove the error. Next I did a chmod 644
/root/.dmrc and I still get the error. The only thing
I did was change SELinux from Permissive to Disabled
mode and rebooted.

This is on K12LTSP 6 with all the updates.

Thank you,
