linux question

By ozric_vita ·

I have one quick question, I am trying to install Bacula (Ubuntu 9.04) and I have to edit some .conf files. To edit the files I use 'gksudo gedit filename', after the changes I save it but if I list the files I get two files with the same name, example:
bconsole.conf and bconsole.conf~
Am I missing something here? I did some googling but my search query sucked so nothing relevant came up.

Next question:
Has anyone installed/used Bacula for backups?

You need to use the super user account...
SUDO (then your command)

So the ~ at the end of each file is a backup file. Gedit will backup every file with ~ suffix. You can close this function at Edit -> Preferences,uncheck Create a backup copy of files before saving.
