Remove those 3 lines at the bottom.
Error states syntax problem at line 62, so modify line 62.

Yeah, just shows the danger of blindly copy-pasting when you don't understand what it is you're changing. Imagine if that had been xorg.conf or GRUB - easy way to lose a noob (no disrepect, we were all noobs once) when their system borks on the 'advice of the community'.

Lesson - always understand why you're doing something before you do it.

I've been guilty of f*cking up other people's systems a time or two. I once wrote a tutorial for how to install a certain package that wasn't in the official repos. I accidentally left out one character in the command and it erased everyone's /etc/apt/sources.list file!

For instance the command I gave was:

Code:
echo 'foobar' > /etc/sources.list
The command was supposed to be:

Code:
echo 'foobar' >> /etc/sources.list
The difference in the two is that '>' will erase the file and add the command whereas '>>' will simply keep the file and append the new line to it. After a few people *****ed that somehow their sources.list file got wiped, I scratched my head for a few and then did a facepalm. Then I gave everyone a

lol leaving out a > caused a bunch of noobs to burn and crash due to copy and pasting... XD awesome

ive always tried to figure out what a command does before i copy and paste lol pretty good idea if you are using linux anyway cause that way you LEARN stuff probably some what of a cause of ubuntu users failing to advance as fast as people who try using other distros...
