Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-12-09 14:51:03 EST
Description of Problem:

Summary says it all for root.
Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2002-12-10 08:49:11 EST
Tim -- I added you to the cc list since you seem to own printman
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-12-10 08:55:31 EST
Er.. can you explain what the problem is please?
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2002-12-10 10:01:54 EST
Beta2 has added printman and desktop-printing with
/etc/skel/.gnome-desktop/Print.desktop for regular users.  This file is "owned
by" desktop printing which you (Tim) seem to currently handle (fortunately for
me since I did not check who owned the file beforehand and just assumed it was
part of printman).

My point is that it should also be on root's desktop  which means (to me) it
probably needs to be added to the rootfiles package.

Since you have been doing this printing stuff, I thought you should be copied
since it is not an obvious rootfiles thing.  If this is not appropriate, I am
sorry and just delete yourself.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2002-12-10 10:26:41 EST
I wonder whether root needs the icon.
Comment 5 Gene Czarcinski 2002-12-10 10:40:32 EST
Lets put it this way -- now that it is there for regular users, I like it and
find it useful.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2002-12-10 10:43:06 EST
Consistency is certainly good.  notting: what do you think the best solution is?
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-11 17:52:50 EST
Hm, yeah, it probably should be there. Or be in some sort of system-wide default
icon list.
Comment 8 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-11 18:17:56 EST
But obligatory comment that logging into your desktop as root is unsupported and 
we shouldn't spend a lot of time caring about it.
