Script for automated testing of computer latency.

Trying to run the script, but I'm getting an error message:

(firefox:2062): dconf-CRITICAL unable to create file 'home/mill/.cache/dconf/user' :permission denied. Dconf will not work properly.

The script is running and reporting latency, but the error pops up when the Firefox/Vimeo test window opens. Video loads but does not start playing. Error message repeats almost continuously.

Complete and utter Linux novice, so I'm sure it's something I've done (or not done) regarding folder permissions. Did cut/paste the 'sudo ./lcnc-hw' command per instructions, so it isn't that.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Ralph

I had the same issue on Mint 19.3.
I used
chown -R <youruser>:root dbconf
to change the ownership on the dbconf dir and anything in it
Then used
chmod -R g+rw dbconf
to get the correct read/write permissions.

This allowed things to work. The video still does not auto play. I just kick that off with a mouse click by hand at the start. But the continual stream of errors has gone.
