Re: Using Bleachbit CAN do damage!

I had a similar problem. Now I don't use it as "superuser".

Re: Japanese Earthquake

Fortunately the tsunami alert was a non event here (in New Zealand), one disaster at a time is enough, thanks!

Re: Removal of SD Cards from Card Reader

Re: Question about conky photo setup

I've got 4 photos to display being stored in home/mastery/conky_photos and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I searched the Net, but not much info on this program.

Re: LMDE Bug Reports Thread

When I started up today after downloading level 3 updates last night, I have no /HOME. :(

I have no access to Nautilus, or menus or anything. Just a screen with the wallpaper, and a very minimalist task bar.
