      Should I also back up the whole home
      by changing for example from Xubuntu to Siduction?

      All folders created by me have the name
      So until I know all directories
      it is easy for me to see
      what is selfmade.

      What do I have to do
      I create a directory and there I put all executable files.
      I create a subfolder mybin in the dir bin like bin/mybin
      and put there my executable files.
      I think it is possibel to
      make a shell file:
      ffx does start firefox
      as shortcut.

      > That gives you control. Not to mention being much faster.

      Thank You
