[SOLVED] How to prepare fresh /home partition for use

The disk of my old /home partition broke and I currently do not have a replacement nor enough space to copy it somewhere else.
To use linux until I may be able to copy the old partition, I resized another one and made a small fresh /home. Then put it into fstab and created a /home/*user* directory there.
However now I can still not login to my Desktop Environment (KDE). I get to the login screen and after logging in I just get back there.

What do I have to do to be able to use the new /home?

It will most probably be folder rights on the /home/<<<user>>>.
Chown it.

How exactly did you create the user directory and which permissions does it have? It should have 0700 and your user's uid and a gid your user belongs to (... usually a group of the same name, or something generic like users)

You're right, I was missing a chown *user*:*user*. Thanks!
