RE: [K12OSN] 4.4.0 upgrade



Eric,

The commands that you suggested work just as you said.
Everything is as it should be.

Thanks,
Ted

You can run this command to switch your existing users from the
4.0.x-style desktop to the 4.2.x & 4.4.x style desktop:

	/opt/ltsp/templates/k12linux/reset-all-desktops

Looks like you need to nuke the old mtools config file in each user's
home directory. Start off by testing your own account:

	rm -f ~/.mtoolsfm

and log out & log back in. If it works as expected, then this command
will do the same for all of your users:

	rm -f /home/*/.mtoolsfm
