Right got that :D Also, I forgot what the 'chmod' command was for taking ownership back of my files. Could you be kind enough to tell what it would be? ::)

It's not chmod, it's chown (you aren't changing permissions, you're changing ownership), so if your username is still bally .. put them all in a directory called something like change-owner, put that directory in your home directory, and run:

Code: [Select]
sudo chown -R bally:bally ~/change-owner

or use the FULL path
Code: [Select]
sudo chown -R bally:bally /home/bally/change-owner

ALL files (including subdirectories) in /home/bally/change-owner will be changed to
Owner = bally
Group = bally

This is the posting you were looking for :)

Install his files last night, doesn't have seemed to helped the issue with FFB. Guess I'll have to upgrade my kernel to 2.6.39.
