$ sudo find /home/rick -user root 
/home/rick/.dbus
/home/rick/.dbus/session-bus
/home/rick/.dbus/session-bus/d7b25a27fe064cadb75a2f2f6ca7764e-0
/home/rick/.cache/dconf
/home/rick/.aptitude/config
/home/rick/.sane
/home/rick/.sane/xsane
/home/rick/.sane/xsane/xsane.rc
/home/rick/.packages
/home/rick/.config/gedit
/home/rick/.config/gedit/accels

.sane is the Brother scanner package that had to be installed using sudo so Iā€™m not concerned. gedit Iā€™m not concerned about.

What about dbus stuff and .packages? Should this be an area of concern or does everyone have that when they repeat the search command I used?

ā‡§ Is there a way of limiting the Kernel's memory manager to use only 75% of memory? Is it safe to apt-get upgrade an all default LEMP?  ā‡©
