Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219027
RFE: Easy configuration for mutiuser sharing of sound & multimedia devices
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:48:25 EST
Description of feature:
This is to request a feature to easily and securely share common devices among
localy logged in users to the same system for Desktop.
Example, on a default FC6 install, with an average powerful system, I log in
twice with different accounts via gdm/gdmflexiserver but the second user to log
on does not get any access to NetworkManager and Sound system.
In this case both of the users be trusted users.
This is a niche feature but could be useful at times for many.
I have two users on my machine and use gdmflexiserver to login the second user
and switch back and forth between users. My media programs, particularly sound,
do not follow the user but control of the programs remains stuck with the first
user to login.
I am using FC6; if I remember correctly, I had the same problem with FC5.
ConsoleKit now handles this.
Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.
