Well I have done it again. I have somehow managed to mess up my OS while trying to download gmail-agent to work with Digikam. I have no idea what I did which is unfortunately no good to the software writers. needless to say I have had to reinstall the whole system again as I could not even get the recovery tho work, still never mind I am up and running again.
