Author Topic: Second user issues on VL6.0 std final - SOLVED  (Read 1250 times)

I've installed VL6.0 std final on two machines and so far almost everything is working except......

when I add a second user moving the mouse up-down the main menu items does not highlight the item and various other diolog box items are missing. I've tried adding second users as part of the the install and via vasm with the same results, both root and main users work fine though. The other thing I've noticed is that if I change the theme all is well but if I revert back to the default theme (gotchione) the problem returns. This behaviour is present on two seperate installs on two seperate boxes. I'm assuming one of the second user config files is corrupt or missing but I'm not sure which.

Any ideas?

Chris

I finally found a solution to this issue.

All themes, well the ones that I checked, are owned by root and in group root whereas "gotchione" is owned by me and in my group. If I change the ownership and group of "gotchione" to root the theme does not work properly for any users except root. If I then change the ownership and group to the second user the theme then works properly for the second user but not the first. It seems that "gotchione" wiil only work correctly when the user is the owner of this theme.

The solution is to simply make a local copy of "gotchione" in your /home/username/.theme directory for each user and change the owner and group to username. By the way install time themes can be found in /usr/share/themes
