Description of problem:

2.Select "System Settings"
3.Double click the "User Manager" icon

Actual Results:  Nothing!

Expected Results:  The user manager program should have been invoked, of course.

This should be fixed with skipjack-beta2 and the installation of usermode-gtk,
Comment 2 Manfred Hollstein 2002-04-10 14:10:34 EDT
I'm using skipjack-beta2 and usermode-gtk *is* installed. I missed to state
in the initial report, that I was logged in as root already, so usermode-gtk
is not involved at all.

Looking at the file /etc/X11/sysconfig/redhat-config-users.desktop doesn't
show anything obviously wrong, so I have no clue, why it's failing -- especially
since invoking the tool via the GNOME menu->Programs->System->User Manager
*does* work as expected...

Please have someone reopen this report.

Can you get eel 1.0.2-10 and see if that resolves it? There was a fix in that
Comment 4 Manfred Hollstein 2002-04-10 16:21:11 EDT
Yep, updating to that particular version fixed the problem. What an odd bug,
do you know why it's only the User Manager failing?
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-04-10 17:08:10 EDT
the thing is that eel contains a utility function that nautilus uses to launch
the app, and the utility function messes up stdout/stderr so that usermode
doesn't work. it's a mess. ;-)
