Re: [K12OSN] PostSession script, rm command and user directories

Hi and thanks for the reply. :)

I have tryed rm -rf /home/terminal9/.* and rm -rf /home/terminal9/* but no luck. It does remove my .gnome etc. files and other stuff but files/folders made by the user logged in are still not removed.

The gdm PostSession script is using root privileges and when system runs it, users that end the session are blocked (as said in the manuals and webpages I've looked). So there should be no problem erasing the directories.

My currently working server (FC4 and KDE + kiosktool) is using this method and there are no problems with PostScript and rm command while logging out from the account. Everything is erased and replaced with the default settings in /usr/BACKUP tar files. Now in backup server I can't get it to work ... :( regardless of the fack that it has been set up almost the same as current server (using GNOME desktop, FC5 and LTSP5 + sabayon for limitations)

Did you run them as root? Or through some root owned script? Running
in scripts owned by by others / gdm may not allow this.

Alternatively do rm -rf /home/terminal9/.* and rm -rf
/home/terminal9/* together work?

Sorry I jumped in to the thread a bit late and I may be asking you to
cover the ground all over again.
