I have been recently trying to install GNOME on my uni
network and I have encountered a small problem:
I have fianlly suceeded at getting some stuff to work
When I add the Background file in
$prefix/etc/gnome/config, I 'rm -rf ~/.gnome'
The capplet stalls during GNOME startup.
It apears that putting a simple Background file
does not make the capplet stall (ie: a file where
only ONE background color without gradient is set)
but putting a Background file with a gradient in
this directory makes the capplet stall.
When launching gmc for the first time, it appears
that it is developing the filesystem tree resulting
in a HUGE nfs slowdown. The server begins to get tired
of this. Imagine 50 users trying to do the same !!
So, question: is it possible to configure gmc to read only
the user home directory without showing all of the tree ?
Any answer is welcome.
