[ ! -L $HOME/Desktop/classroom ] && ln -s /home/classroom ${HOME}/Desktop/classroom
[ ! -L $HOME/classroom ] && ln -s /home/classroom ${HOME}/classroom

I created the file /etc/profile.d/check_desktop_links.sh. The file has 755 permissions
and is owned by root.root.  Here is the text in the file:

#!/bin/bash

[ ! -L $HOME/Desktop/Drop ] && ln -s /home/Drop ${HOME}/Desktop/Drop
[ ! -L $HOME/Desktop/Public ] && ln -s /home/Public ${HOME}/Desktop/Public


I login and no links :-(

If I run ln -s /home/Drop ~/Desktop/Drop at the command line the link creates fine, same
with the Public link.  Ideas?

If you run /etc/profile.d/check_desktop_links.sh from a command line, are the links created?
