Gentlemen, all of you,
I sincerely thank each and everyone of you. I have tried each and
every suggestion and just for the heck of it I reinstalled one more
time. I do own the program, according to the properties and the bible
group has benn created and every one was put into it and the group
permissions reflects those statements to be true. The last reinstall
was done from the user account and with all of these things being true,
I must log into the root account to use my Bible program.
All I can surmise is that one, you are a great group of people to
have stuck through this with a hard headed old man and two, we can't fix
this and we can only pray that the software writers will Address this
issue in the hear future.
Gentlemen, thank you!
