problems with Keep backup system
 
I learned how to use Keep, but only from the root account. Trying to perform a backup from my account, I got this long string of error messages:

I can't say I understand that fully, but it obviously means my account
can't perform the backup because it doesn't have the right file permissions. I should have permissions to do everything, thank you--it's my computer. I guess I'll try to chown my backup drive to my account, since MEPIS says root owns it...

Never mind, I solved my own problem. The problem andthe solution were exactly the same as described in post #5 of my old thread http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ighlight=chown .
