For normal users, some files in /etc/skel have no read permission and some folders have no execute permission, making it hard to copy the contents without becoming root. Since there's no critical data in this folder (is there?) it might make life slightly easier to fix this some day. Meanwhile we users can runsudo chmod -R a+rX /etc/skel :)
just installed the new alpha2. It looked so great from the live menu that I want to keep the default look. BUT! I have kept my old $HOME and hence all the themes etc.How can I restorer the design to the default?The files in./etc/skel/.config/openbox/menu.xmlare all emptyand ./etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xmlseems to be the bare openbox defaults.
Terminal shows this
bash: /home/atlas/.bashrc: line 73: syntax error near unexpected token ['
bash: /home/atlas/.bashrc: line 73:if [ -x /usr/bin/dircolors ] ; then '
I've tried to fix it using
"cp /ect/skel/.bashrc ~/"
And I get this "cp: cannot stat `/ect/skel/.bashrc': No such file or directory"
I'm unsure of why this is doing this and how to fix it.
If you meant that having remastersys copy over your /home/user data to /etc/skel within the program, I would advise against that for may reasons...Manually copy anything you want or need to /etc/skel... It will be far more effective and keep your personal info out of the loop should you ever want to share it
