Hi, Tried your script. #!/bin/sh -eu # Configuration YOUR_USER=stevesr0 YOUR_GROUP=video XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/'id -u $YOUR_USER' if [ $? -ne 0 ] then echo "No such user $YOUR_USER" exit 1 fi # Delete existing directory, create a new one and set permissions rm -rf $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR mkdir -p $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR chown $YOUR_USER:$YOUR_GROUP $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR chmod 700 $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR" leads to an error message: "rm: invalid option -- 'u' Try 'rm --help' for more information." I looked at rm --help,but didn't see a reference to a u option. The only two "u" options are on the first line and on line 7 in reference to the runtime dir ('id -u $YOUR_USER'). I checked what group seatd uses as you suggested and it was video. Looked around on the internet, can't find an explanation for the error. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks. Steve Rinsler
