For some weird reason, several programs have started to segfault when I try to run them without escalated privileges. Among these are
variety which used to run fine without
sudo up until yesterday; if I run them with
sudo they work fine. I still haven't figured out if there are other applications that have the same issues but I am guessing that if I find out what is causing it for one of the applications, it will solve it for all of them.
The output I get from running e.g.
gnome-abrt in the terminal is:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME && sudo restorecon -r $HOME seems to have created unexpected changes. Opening up Steam gives me this error:
Repairing installation, linking /home/myuser/.steam/steam to /home/myuser/.local/share/Steam rm: cannot remove '/home/myuser/.steam/steam': Permission denied Setting up Steam content in /home/myuser/.local/share/Steam ln: failed to access '/home/myuser/.steam/steam': Permission denied
Please help me "undo" this command.
EDIT 2: those two particular packages were updated today, so it seems that something has gone wrong on the devs' end.
