Common desktop settings not saved on reboot

Question

Armbianmonitor:

Hello,

 

I installed last Bionic on a Orange Pi PC+. It's on EMMC. (it used to have an old Armbian Ubuntu with 3.x kernel before)


Common settings (background image, GTK theme, icons, panel) are there on logout but are not saved on reboot.

I saved a text file in the home user folder, it's OK.

With another common user I face the same problem, with the root account settings are saved.

 

My Linux knowledge is average, I really don't know what's wrong.

 

Thank you

Mathieu

Sorry 1 for late reply, I was away for the weekend.

Sorry 2, I guess I should have posted this in "Common issues" section.

 

You were right, a few directories were owned not by the user, but by root instead. I don't know why.

By the way the second user I created was actually OK.

 

I changed ownership and group of those few directories and files back to the user with chown -R and chgrp -R (my Linux knowledge is only average, was that the best way to go?).

Thank you and thank you for your and other folks' outstanding work on Armbian.

Desktop, when installed via armbian-config, had this problem and it was fixed a week ago at source level. Hasn't landed to the repository yet.
