I see. They
are owned by root but I am signed in as the superuser to straighten
this out so how do I?
The permissions seem OK. Who owns the files? You or root? If root,
then you'll have to do what Nils suggested...

I recently used synaptic, from Ubuntu
7.10, and installed KDE 3.5 Desktop. It's fantastic but having MS I've
mostly lost the use of my right arm and need to operate my Track Ball
from the left. I make the System changes and everything is fine until
I reboot. On rebooting I get two messages each time;
It's "/home/<your log on>/.kde/share/config". Note the "." before
kde? It means it's a hidden file so you'll need to Show Hidden Files
on your Konqueror's View menu. All the files in that folder and below
should belong to you. If they don't, that's why you can't write to
.. The first informs me that my Preferences cannot be saved because
/home/<my log on>/kde/share/config/koonquerorrc is not writable.
.. The second follows the same path up to /config/kickerrc and it has
the same problem.
I went to my home file and from there created kde/share/config and
there created the two ending files and in permissions made them
writable. Still, I have the problem. Please, where did I go wrong?
