    Try this
    Code:
    sudo chown -R yourusername /home
    to change the ownership of your entire home folder.

    Can you try to save again with gedit?

    I found the solution!
    try this:

    gconftool-2 --toggle /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_save_to_disk

    I have exactly the same problem but the solution above doesn't work for me
    Is there any thoughts about some digging directions?

    Please start a new thread. An old thread marked as solved won't attract much attention.
