    [SOLVED] Re: Deja-Dup (Backup) Cannot backup files

    Well that stumps me, you are the owner of all the files within ~/.dbus so you shouldn't get any error. I'm sorry I don't think I can help much more, it seems to think you don't have permission to...

  8. [SOLVED] Re: Bash - Get exit status from command nested in brackets

    [ubuntu] Re: 14.04 no password field for login

  21. [lubuntu] Re: How do I unlink symbolic links all at once? and how do I make symlinks permament?

  25. [SOLVED] Re: Why can't I change permissions on a non-system folder?
