Accidently, I ran
sudo rm -r /tmp, is that a problem ?
I recreated it using
sudo mkdir /tmp, does that fix the problem ?
After I recreated the directory, In the places section in the sidebar in nautilus in Ubuntu 14.04 I can see /tmp , which wasn't there before .. Is that a problem ?
One last thing, do I have to run
sudo chown $USER:$USER /tmp to make it accessible as it was before .. Would there be any side-effects after this ?
By the way, I get this seemingly-related error whenI try to use bash autocompletion
bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: Permission denied
