Hi all, and sorry for posting again so soon.
Ive been using gentoo during the summer off from college, and when i got back to school i had some internet/permissions problems.
After adding myself to plugdev to fix that, now i cant access the games. ive done the following:
Code:
C655 ~ # groups john
lp wheel audio cdrom video usb portage games plugdev john
C655 ~ # chmod -R 750 /usr/games/
C655 ~ # chown -R root:games /usr/games/

Even after logging out and in again i still dont have any idea whats wrong, and cant find any more relevant forum posts.
thanks for reading,
john

surprisingly enough
Code:

john@C655 ~ $ /usr/games/bin/minecraft       
asdf

and then the game turns on. but the game icon on the desktop is denied access and the entire "games" section of the xfce menu is gone. weird stuff.
