Description Scott Sloan 2004-03-09 00:36:46 UTC
Description of problem:

A new feature in gnome2.6 is the ability to store document templates
in ~/templates so when the user right clicks on the desktop a list of
templates are available which read the ~/template directory. However
when a new user is created and logs in to gnome, this directory is
never created. 

I'm reported in this a bug because if not created the user will never
be able to use templates, unless he manually creates the ~/template
directory. However this could be a great enhancement with Fedora
coming with default and predetermine templates.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in as user
2. right click on the desktop
3. select create document **NOTE: any documents in ~/Templates will be
listed here, however ~/Templates doesn't exsist

Comment 1 Mark McLoughlin 2004-03-09 08:25:50 UTC
Nautilus is actually what's responsible for the desktop. gnome-desktop
mainly contains the libgnome-desktop library (for parsing .desktop
files) and the gnome-about program.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2004-03-09 12:08:08 UTC
Nautilus automatically creates the directory when you use places ->
templates or go -> templates.
