Thanks Neal and Charlie, I've tried:
# chown -Rv gean:gean /home/gean
but the ownership stays the same root, maybe its important to say that the /home is an NTFS partition, mounted by /etc/fstab as:
/dev/sda3 /home auto defaults 0 0
this is the correct way to mount this? the problem can be here? All the home dirs in this machine have root ownerships.
