comment Trusty Wallpapers XML and images in right place
Sorry all, started new job, forgot to check in. The hard drive with full encryption is the one where I ran into the issues, not a real big one to bother on, but was just awkward. Will be rebuilding that image on Trusty again soon, to reflect my new priorities in support.

comment Second HDD from Windows as backup
Never one to assume what hardware people have these days. Never certain until they spell it out. Agree not necessary in that case, but also do not know what they have in the system (wish these would be more specific in posts).

comment Installing Steam on Ubuntu 13.10 - Need Execute Permissions
You need to allow Steam to be located where the files can be accessed and executed. This means you should place this into a drive where you will have permissions. Root is the only user that mounts file systems at the partition level and altering the system to allow a user root permissions is really not the right way to do that. Increasing the size of your /home partition might be a better alternative. You can store files in another directory, but don't believe that this will be accessible without a lot of extra work that isn't really advisable from a security standpoint.
