Thanks for the help. Before we go any further, I am a novice at computer speak. I am mostly just a user from the "Windows" world. That being said, A - you were right about"config" being misspelled. B - While logged in as "root" (the only way I'm allowed) my user name "cj" is not shown on any directory search, but I did find "knotifyrc". This file is owned by "root" and UID and GID are unassigned. As for .ICEauthority, I cannot find it, either with a manual or automated search.
