Not sure if this is germane, but, over in the Other Distros thread, I've been singing the praises of a Fedora spin named Korora, and pipe-dreaming of a FedoraPup or FedoraDog, and today mcewanw chimed in to agree it would be a desireable thing. It is a Fedora convention that all users other than root go under /home. So, making it a Puppy convention as well might nudge the oven switch toward on. Just sayin'.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Aug 2016, 07:07    Post subject: Not Using Fido or Spot  

I´ve not had any use for either spot or fido until now.
I´m trying to run a series of scripts collectively called webdl that can be used to download streamed Australian TV like iview.
Its from https://delx.net.au/git/webdl.
Webdl depends on a program called livestreamer.
I´ve downloaded the program livestreamer from the ppm but I can´t get it to run as root.
If I change the user to spot or fido, livestreamer now runs but I get this error:
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/root/.cache/webdl'
I´ve changed the permissions to ¨anyone¨ but the program still fails.
Using Linux Mint 18 with a non-root account the program runs fine.
As a programming noob a non-root account in this instance would be useful.
I´m using Lspup_Xenial.
