comment Can't open Catalyst with administrative privileges
The only way I could get it to work was by installing Unity and changing it through the Unity windows manager. Then logging back into XFCE. I wonder how many people have this problem.

comment How to change a users username without the GUI
I'm relatively new to this, but I still can't believe I forgot the usermod command. Thanks.

If I got to Display, in the Settings Manager, it doesn't give me the option to configure multiple desktops. However, the changes I make there do stick.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I have the same results with gksu.

comment Permission denied for many directories with Rsync
Thanks. It seems as if access is denied because I do not have root access on the server being backed up. I am using the following command: sudo rsync -av ubuntu@*******:/ /media/backup1/ubuntubackup. I figured out how to see where access was denied. Now, I am wondering how to get root access to my Ubuntu Server server, via Rsync. Once I log in through Rsync, I do not have the option to issue a sudo command. I understand that I can configure the Rsync daemon, instead of going through SSH, but I was wondering if there was a way to do it through SSH with Ubuntu.
