    Have you installed any additional software from the Web or different repositories ?

    Did you add ubuntu repository to /etc/apt/sources? If you did, I suggest a clean install of BT5, as ubuntu sources can break BT. I assume your home and boot (grub) are on separate partition, so:

    #tar -cvf /etc etc.tar should copy all your settings.

    EDIT: I got the same error after I added a user through # adduser and logged in as the new user - not a serious error. Your settings from root will not carry over to the new user of course, and you can copy them to the new user's folder if you wish. If you want the new user to be able to run commands as root add the user to admin group and sudo group.

    I have the same error, I added the new user to the groups " admin " and " sudo ", but I get the same error.

    How can I copy the settings from root to the new user ?

    Thanks.
