    chown: invalid group: ‘root:root’

    Seems like the update to sudo has broken a few things

    Heh! My RR install has more issues than a New York magazine stand, right now!

    Last night, whenever I tried to print anything, it crashed the app, regardless of which app I was trying to print from... today, printing works fine.

    Window decorations change colors at will, then back to normal.

    I've got caribou-antler virtual keyboards popping up, all over the place, for no good reason, blah, blah, blah.

    Kind of a rough period we're going through...

    In the context of
    sudo chown root:root <file>
    works fine

    I'm an idiot.

    I added a stray letter to /etc/group
