Tonight I successfully resolved my own question. after getting into some difficulties. The resolution in the end was simple and came straight from the Ubuntu Community Documentation.

The reason why I am asking "How do I answer my own question" is because there is a trail which may cause confusion (historically) if members click on associated links etc. Let me explain:

I asked this question a while ago. It was closed and I was told it was a duplicate of this question. I took this at face value and followed these instructions that got me into difficulties today, (hence my new question)

While you guys have the decision, I think it would be appropriate (cleaner) to reopen my original question and put the answer there and reference this with a Problem solved link back to the original on my new question. Maybe you have other rules of how to tidy things up. My intent is good as I dont want future members to run into the same difficulties as I did. let me know what approach I should take and I will follow up

By the way, I forgot to mention, the final resolution was completely different from the instruction I was following

  • I'm not sure what you're asking here - do you want to have that question reopened, and then you want to answer it, right? – jrg Apr 27 '12 at 21:24
  • Yes that right (only because thats the right place for the answer) From my perspective. You might not agree. I think it would be helpful to others to have the answer there – stephenmyall Apr 27 '12 at 21:27
  • Well done on the followthrough, upvotes all around from me! – Jorge Castro Apr 27 '12 at 22:58

Your original question is reopened.

As for if you can, go right ahead - this stackexchange blog post states:

To be crystal clear, it is not merely OK to ask and answer your own question, it is explicitly encouraged.
