    permission problem, cannot login

    I changed permissions of /tmp ( cause of a script that I tried which wrote files to /tmp which I later had no access to as user )
    I changed it with konqeror (file manager as super user) to group : jack (= user)
    After that I couldn't start konqeror and many other programs. error message was something like : /tmp/mcop-root is set accessale to user

    After reboot I couldn't login to kde anymore.

    my username to login is jack

    how can set permissions of /tmp right again? and what camand should I use?
    I already tried : chown root /tmp but that didn't help.

    It's probably very simple but at this time I cannot use knoppix anymore.
    please help

    chown -R user.group /directory

    i think that shoud be:

    chown jack.jack /tmp -R

    jack as user and jack as group (maybe gorup jack is unnessesery...). try...
