View Full Version : [gnome] Fixing .dmrc issue leads to no theme being loaded.

March 27th, 2009, 06:40 PM
My .dmrc was being ignored by gnome upon logging in.

I did a google search and found this site. ("http://mihirknows.blogspot.com/2008/06/homedmrc-file-is-being-ignored-solved.html".) Which gave me these instructions.

sudo chmod 644 /home/xx/.dmrc
sudo chown xx/home/xx/.dmrc
sudo chmod -R 700 /home/xx
sudo chown -R xx/home/xx

The .dmrc issue is gone but now my theme won't load and it goes to the gnome default. When I try to open the appearance manager the screen flashes black then logs me out. I assume those instructions created a permission issue, but on which file I do not know.
