kubuntu 13.10 reinstall problems


After complete re-install of kubuntu 13.10, & have all the latest updates, here's a few problems I encountered that did not occur in my previous install.
Problem 1
Code:
bumpy@bumpyputer:~$ sudo auto-apt updatedb
dpkg: warning: obsolete option '--print-installation-architecture'; please use '--print-architecture' instead
put: 0 files,  0 entries done (0 sec)
bumpy@bumpyputer:~$ sudo auto-apt updatedb --print-architecture
dpkg: warning: obsolete option '--print-installation-architecture'; please use '--print-architecture' instead
/usr/lib/auto-apt/auto-apt-pkgcdb: invalid option -- '-'
usage: /usr/lib/auto-apt/auto-apt-pkgcdb [option] [command ...]
command:
        put
        get filename
        list
        del package
option:
        -v      verbose
        -q      quiet
        -p      profile
        -d      debug
        -f dbfile
        -P paths.list
bumpy@bumpyputer:~$
PROBLEM 2
Ownership of Folder &/or documents. Many documents open OK - A few will not open
Changed ownership of some folders (were root) to my ownership.Some docs still won't open.
QUESTION: How can I change all folder settings at once??
& what does Special settings do.

PROBLEM 5
After shutdown & reboot, or restart, there appears anywhere from 2 25 small windows of my screensaver filling one of 2 desktop monitors. All are active!
My video driiver Am using kocensaver. On normal timed activation, my dual screens are different.
When I run it in test mode, both monitors act as one big screen, which is what I want.
How can I correct thsi? Nvidia version: Additional Drivers - nvidia-_319

PROBLEM 6
Previously I was able to create desktop shortcuts of documents by dragging. I can still create them, but they are inactive. Is this anything to do with symlinking?
I found this symlink command, & works perfectly opening from the folder, but won't open from my actual Desktop!! How come?
bumpy@bumpyputer:~/Documents/Accounting$ sudo ln -s ~/Documents/Accounting/Accounting_Records_MASTER.ods ~/Desktop/Banking3

PROBLEM 7 Wicd
Code:
bumpy@bumpyputer:~$ wicd-gtk --no-tray
Has notifications support True
Loading...
Connecting to daemon...
Can't connect to the daemon, trying to start it automatically...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/wicd/daemon/wicd-daemon.py", line 1859, in <module>
    main(sys.argv)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/daemon/wicd-daemon.py", line 1708, in main
    os.symlink(dest, backup_location)
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists
