On my Mac, I always have 2 different partitions, one for installing the system and the other one for my home directory. Today, I’ve just re-installed the whole system and of course I have to specify the home path after the installation. However, after changing the home directory, many of my applications cannot work properly. I have checked and recognize that the $HOME variable in the shell now has a trailing slash (/Volumes/tmtxt/ instead of /Volumes/tmtxt).

That was so annoying and took me hours to investigate. Finally I found the problem. It comes from one of my carelessness when I change the home directory location.

Yes, I typed the path manually… How stupid I was. Why not just use the Choose button right next there :LOL:

Just change it to another folder, restart the computer and change back to the right home folder. Everything will be fixed automatically.
