Quake all messed up


I recently installed the quake-ql amd quake stub packages on my box
(latest potatoe) and there appears to be a major screw-up somewhere!!

here's what written to the terminal I run quake-gl from

Couldn't write config.cfg.

the last line occours when I quit.  It runs but the screen is very
dark. attempting to save a game give a permission denied error.

There are no man pages ??? What options does the program take (if any)
where are the config files stored?

Any help would be appreciated - thanks in advance
