It's a long story I'm not about to get into unless I absolutely have to, though I will shoot one quick question that might help me out. My terminal skills are about weak, and I need a rough idea of what this script does... #!/bin/bash cp -rp -t ~/ .config/ .icons/ ; cd .. ; rm -fr dropbox-integration/ I have an idea of what it does, and I think I've fixed it, but if I haven't, knowing what this does will help me out tremendously. ...yeah, I shouldn't do anything in Linux unless I know exactly what it does. The one downside to it compared to OSX and Windows is that it's not exactly stupid-proof. edit: okay, I fixed the problem, but I'd still like to know what the script does exactly. I know it's copying and replacing files and folders from one location to another inside my home folder, but the syntax is about confusing.
