Description Brian G. Anderson 2004-05-03 08:58:52 EDT
Description of problem:
When I first install and run FC2 the computer, home, trash and start
here icons are unadorned.  However, after relogin, all icons are
adorned with the pencil with the red slash over it which I assume is
read-only.  However the start here icon is not. 

I can open all the icons and the applications under them seem to work

When I mount a removable device like my USB disk they have the
read-only adornment.  However, when I drag an icon like mozilla to the
desktop it or create an item using the 'create launcher' selection it
does not have it.

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

How reproducible:
I have this on two different machines.  It always occurs after I log
in for the second time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2
2. Log in for the firs time
3. Log in for a second time
Actual results:
read-only adornments on desktop icons

Expected results:
no adornments

Comment 1 Brian G. Anderson 2004-05-04 01:57:26 EDT
Upon further investigation, I have found that adding my login to group
root causes the read-only adornments.  If I remove myself from that
group then the adornments go away.

This doesn't happen to me in fc3test3 if i add the user to the root
group. Considering this fixed.
