let me off the bus! [debian linux]
Alright, my bus directory (/~/.config/ibus/bus) is acting weird. When I run a gnome program, I get a message like this:
IBUS-WARNING **: The owner of /~/.config/ibus/bus is not [local user]!
If I use 'sudo chown' to change directory ownership back to the local user, I inevitably get
IBUS-WARNING **: The owner of /~/.config/ibus/bus is not root!
A directory can't be owned by root and a user at once. I don't think I deleted a crucial file. Perhaps I inadvertently modified a variable somewhere? I'm stumped. Ideas?
It would probably be better to ask this on the debian-user mailing list and a number of folks are running GNOME are subscribed to that list. I don't see the issue since I don't use GNOME and Xfce doesn't put an ibus directory or that file under ~/.config so I can't help.
It might be worth renaming that directory. i.e., effectively deleting it but able to put it back if you need to.
I have no idea what it does but quite often a config directory or file will be recreated with reasonable default settings if it doesn't exist.
Google has a lot of information on this. Seems to be a bug related to another program that's installed. Read a few of the reports and act accordingly.
