Codeblocks seems unable to save settings.
« on: January 30, 2011, 06:45:34 pm »
I have installed codeblocks via the ubuntu respos pages suggested in the downloads section http://lgp203.free.fr/ubuntu/, I am running ubuntu 10.04.
However, the program seems unable to save any of its session to session settings, this manifests itself in the following symptoms.

1. I get asked to select the complier over and over.
2. My font selections don't save.
3. My projects never appear in the recent projects list upon restart.

Tried searching around from this type of thing but found nothing so far.
Thanks in advance.

Do you run C::B as normal user ?
Do you have a hidden directory named .codeblocks in your home-directory ?
What is inside it ?

You can try to start C::B from a virtual console (like gnome-terminal) and see if you get any error message.

There was a .codeblocks directory, which for some reason was owned by root.
I deleted the directory and let codeblocks recreate it, all is good now, thank you for your help.
