...how do I make my system safe?
Given the resent condemnation of Automatix, and how it can break ubuntu, I would like to know how to remove it and then make my systems safe.
It is not that Ax is bad, it is just that it has a few downsides.
If you want Ax support, visit their forums.
IMO you are best off with a fresh install and learning how to install the software you need with the standard Ubuntu tool set. You can also look at Linux Mint as it makes multi media a little easier.
The choice is yours ...
There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

If you want to use Automatix, I don't think it's a bad thing, and many people use it all the time with no issue. But if you want to use Automatix as a crutch and not learn how to do things the manual way, you're selling yourself short.
Indeed such as myself... I play with alot of system files and automatix is installed on my HP and was on my compaq before I ditched it. Never a prob. Never! lol
