    Default Need help with my user

    Hey guys I used this guide to create my user

    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...backtrack.html

    but when I using the scripts I get

    root@bt:~# cp .config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu /etc/skel/.config/menus/cp: cannot stat `.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu': No such file or directory


    root@bt:~# sed -i 's/XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME\/"/XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME\/desktop"/' /etc/skel/.config/user-dirs.dirs
    sed: can't read /etc/skel/.config/user-dirs.dirs: No such file or directory


    root@bt:~# cp -R /root/{.wine,.dragon,.fluxbox,.mozilla,.msf3,.subversion ,.conky_scripts,.liferea_1.4,.gem} /etc/skel/
    cp: cannot stat `/root/.dragon': No such file or directory
    cp: cannot stat `/root/.fluxbox': No such file or directory
    cp: cannot stat `/root/.msf3': No such file or directory
    cp: cannot stat `/root/.conky_scripts': No such file or directory
    cp: cannot stat `/root/.liferea_1.4': No such file or directory


    I have also created a user I've added my user to all groups(audio disc also in sudoers list.
    I used this script
    root@bt:~# usermod --groups admin,disk,cdrom,audio <user>


    I have also created the profile \.bash_profile

    startx (works fine)
    wicd (doesn't work)

    when I starting wicd. I need to be root. (the

    D-bus thing doesn't work for my user too

    I have also installed gpointing-device-settings with the new user but when I am inactivating my touchpad its still on do I need to install from root?
