I've been a Linux/Ubuntu user/enthusiast since May of 2007. I've been on Ubuntuforums for almost as long. Looking forward to working with another diverse community of users.

comment dod cac reader setup ubuntu 12.04
I haven't done anything special. From a fresh install, I followed the steps I laid out at askubuntu.com/questions/285543/… . Take a look at it and see if you're missing a step. Also, once you receive an error message you need to close firefox before you try again, or you'll just keep getting an error. If it will allow you to chose a cert, make sure you select the "e-mail" cert or it will fail.

comment Crontab not running a script
Ok. Sorry I think we may have gotten off on a rabbit trail. Since, your /home/perforce/logs/bkp.log is listing errors the script is running. It just pukes at p4. Did you edit the script to point to /usr/local/bin/p4 as suggested by Vladimir?

Could you add the results of crontab -l ?

comment Crontab not running a script
Also the user has to be allowed to run cron. Is "perforce" allowed to run cron jobs?

comment Crontab not running a script
From dan08 below: "If you use crontab -e then the file will run as whatever user you were logged in as. sudo crontab -e would cause it to be run as root." Cron runs from crontab based on the owner of that crontab.

comment Backspace in insert mode in vi doesn't erase the character
Ok. You're correct. It looks like I made an assumption. It's been my experience that most people new to VI run into issues with switching modes, and navigating when in the command mode. My students often complain and blame VI for a having erratic behaviour when it's simply user error, or not having a grasp of the command set.

comment How to install onto a non-bootable pc
Also,after you download the Ubuntu ISO, make sure that when you burn it to a CD, use a burning software that is capable of making a bootable ISO. In Windows Nero, Roxio, and DeepBurner are examples of capable programs. Windows CD writer is not.

comment Recover important boot files?
If you have another Windows machine, you should also be able to boot to the live CD on the working machine, copy NTLDR from that machine to a USB drive, and then copy from the USB drive to your problem machine. This way you're not taking candy from strangers. :)
