[K12OSN] profile.d question

For some reason it sounds like your /etc/profile.d/ directory entries
are not running. What version of K12LTSP are you running? I run the
script on 4.1. Try running /etc/profile.d/setprinter.sh as a program
under your terminal. It should return back the prompt with no output.
Check for SETPRINTERS next (via printenv or echo $SETPRINTER). Even if
the DISPLAY is not set properly (I haven't tested this on VNC, probably
won't change the printer on a VNC connection), it should still set the
environmental variable SETPRINTERS.
You are checking for SETPRINTERS, not SETPRINTER (I wrote the command
wrong in previous e-mail).
Sorry it took me so long to respond.. I got swamped.

All I can think of at this point is perhaps DISPLAY isn't being returned like the script wants? In that case, perhaps the script is running, but not finding any matches? I use LDAP for authentication (shouldn't make a difference, but ...)
