[SOLVED] All applications lost their data

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hi, today I started my computer, logged in with the same user as usual, but all the data of the applications are gone. My chromium lost its passwords, thunderbird lost the accounts, KDE lost all my panels and settings. Every file in my home folder is still there though.
Someone has an idea on what this could be?
Thanks already!

The Best Answer

If the files are still there and not broken (e.g. because of bugs/damage) maybe the file and dir permissions were somehow changed (to another user account or something) and the current user is not allowed to read the files in the thunderbird directory (for example).
Check the owner and permissions of the files and dirs with (for example)
ls -alnd ~/.thunderbird
and compare them to the UID of your logged in user account:
id
[EDIT]
As illusionist wrote, maybe check the permissions and owner of "~/.config" too, I don't know for sure where apps store their settings these days.
