After creating a new user account you may find that on login you recieve the following error,
/dev/null is a character special device which should have read+write permissions for everybody.
Run the following to confirm the current permissions for /dev/null,
ls -l /dev/null
If the output doesnt show the permissions crw-rw-rw- then change them accordingly via the chmod command.
