    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    Or maybe superuser's path is corrupted
    Code:
    gksudo /bin/echo $PATH

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    I tried ls -l /bin/chown and got:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 54936 nov. 19 23:25 /bin/chown

    the /bin/chown is in green!

    and yes I realise the password does not show up.

    Thanks again for your continued interest.

    Then try again
    Code:
    sudo chown master:master /home/master
    Wait a minute, do we know yet, which linux version the OP is using?

    I suggest the generic command
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install coreutils

    @sudodus
    Wait, variables on the command line get evaluated by the shell before sudo changes the effective UID.

    @daviddixit
    To see the $PATH for the superuser, run
    Code:
    sudo sh -c 'echo $PATH'

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    I'd still like to see if chown worked. David, please post the output of

    Code:
    namei -l /home/master # <- Again, it's the small letter L

    So you have it where it should be. Try again (carefully, check for typing errors)

    Code:
    sudo /bin/chown master:master /home/master
    and
    Code:
    gksudo /bin/chown master:master /home/master
