Steps to reproduce:
1. enable 'always create backup copy' under tools->options->load/save->general
2. save an existing document after editing
Current behavior: error message (see screenshot) and document not saved.
Expected behavior: save document and backup copy
Platform (if different from the browser): Ubuntu 12.04, 64bit.
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0
I found the cause of this error:
The default directory for backups listed under tools->options->LibreOffice-> paths (/home/MYUSERNAME/.config/libreoffice/3/user/backup) did not exist. Manually creating the backup directory solved the problem. I would expect this direcotry to be created automatically either on install or on the first attempt to save a backup document.

Backup directory have to be created manually otherwise error is displayed as in attachment 62790 [details].
So lets rephrase the summary to be more meaningful and mark as NEW.
