« on: September 21, 2018, 03:25:14 PM »
hi,

how can i fix, when i do
sudo mcedit /path/to/file
editing the file ...
and then as normal user "tc" i cant start mc anymore, after rebooting only, mc can be started as user "tc".

Error:
Code: [Select]
mc
Failed to run:
Cannot create /home/tc/.cache/mc directory
1 + 2 = 6  cause  10 - 6 = 78 ;-) lol

Check the owner of /home/tc/.cache/mc (and any folders/files inside this), is it 'root'? If yes, change them to 'tc' (with e.g. chown).
