I've got FVWM working, no gnome or kde, and everything is fine so far except when I try and switch themes with a non-root user. It starts doing it, then a window pops up saying:
"Can't symlink /usr/share/fvwm/themes/multichoice/images/background /home/dualith/.fvwm/themes/current/images/backgroud: [Permission denied]"
Keep in mind i'm still a noob, i have tried to fix this problem for a while but to noavail. Before this message started appearing it was saying something similar trying to mkdir. I made the directory manually, but now this comes up and I cant fix it :(.

Any help would be appreciated :)

what if you type this:

Code:

ln -s /usr/share/fvwm/themes/multichoice/images/background /home/dualith/.fvwm/themes/current/images/background
