In the Konqueror window that shows the files, right-click and choose 
Actions/Open Terminal Here.  The type the command Nils gave you:

sudo chown -R <your log on>:<your log on> /home/<your log on>

That will ask you for your password...



Wulf Credo:
Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
