RE: [K12OSN] IceWM, Gnome & Nautilus FRUSTRATIONS

you should compare the /etc/passwd file on all your
machines to see if the users have the same uid and gid
on each machine.  See this page for reference:


If they don't match up, I think you can manually edit
/etc/passwd on one machine to make it match the
others, but I might be wrong about that.  Maybe
somebody else can confirm.
