Almost certainly a permissiopns issue, espcially as he mentioned it was
a fresh install mounting an old /home.
I'd be wary of chmodding everything 666 and 777 personally, as certain
things might need other perms. Besides, 644 and 755 are more secure.

@Mark: open a terminal, become root, type 'ls -la'. Should reveal the
problem if it's a permissions issue. Perhaps your UID is different in 
the new system from the previous one, in which case a simple 'chown -R' 
should fix it.
