comment What is the default 'backup' user for?
@ali See edit, it is probably fine to use it for your own purposes. A quick scan through Deboan Code Search: backup path:debian/ -path:debian/patches/ -path:debian/changelog did not show anything related to the backup user (I stopped at page 8).

comment How to migrate user settings and data to new machine?
@Ubuntuit Use rsync if you have a unreliable network and are fine with transferring the home directory of your single user, try: rsync -a /home/you/ you@otherhost:. Pay attention to the trailing slash and note the colon. It copies the contents of you local home directory to the remote location (which starts in its home directory). The -a (--archvive) preserved mtimes, permissions, etc.

comment 14.04 kate editor does not show any plugins (wrong config permission even after fresh install)
@artm Your permissions are messed up, no file in that config folder should be executable, and everything should be owned by you. Try this to correct the ownership and make it not executable and world-writable: sudo chown -R test: ~/.kde4/share/config/ && chmod -R a-x,+X,o-w. For further debugging I suggest you to run kate from a konsole and watch its output for hints (compare the outputs between your two machines).

comment 14.04 kate editor does not show any plugins (wrong config permission even after fresh install)
Looks like Ubuntu calls it kdesudo. Can you post a screenshot with the differences between your two installations? The KDE settings are stored in ~/.kde/share/config/kate* (files prefixed with kate). You can use something like kdiff3 ~/.kde/share/config/katepartpluginsrc your-other-katepartpluginsrc to look for differences.

HEAD and master both do not work, but this link is valid: wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/rubo77/8ffaadbc58ab099d2bc3/raw/ignorelist
