Description of problem:
Double clicking on the "User Manager" icon in the nautilus window
invoked by selecting "System Settings" from the "Start Here" window
doesn't do anything.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Activate "Start Here" from the menu
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,
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
Yep, updating to that particular version fixed the problem. What an odd bug,
do you know why it's only the User Manager failing?
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. ;-)
