Re: [K12OSN] re: smbldap CreatingLDAPClients & smbldap slow login

Matt, you're a genius  :-)
Thanks for being patient and dealing with my very limited Linux knowledge. First, I ran updates on both our K12LTSP6 server and on the test Ubuntu fat client.

On K12LTSP6 thin client:

On Ubuntu fat client:

Create new smbldap user (user-x).
Login as user-x from Ubuntu fat client.
Gnome-panels show up  :-)
Everything looks good.

Logout of Ubuntu fat client.
Login as user-x from K12LTSP6 thin client.
Gnome panels show up, but are different than normal, panel launchers are replaced by question marks.

Logout of K12LTSP6 thin client.
Login as user-x from Ubuntu fat client again.
Gnome panels show up, desktop floppy icon appears.

Now, how do I sync the two so both are using the same gconf2 and/or gnome-panel.

Do you have users logging into two different versions of Gnome? That's
not the desired situation, and (without doing any precise
verification) I believe having different gconf versions can lead to
exactly the sort of situation you're describing, where logging into
one version leaves you with no panels, while the other one works fine.

In order to get around this problem in one of our schools, we just
upgraded all the fat clients and the terminal servers to the same
release of Ubuntu, and then left them alone. That took care of the
issues we had been having with broken desktop configurations.

What happens if you log in for the first time, as a brand new user, on
a thin client? Then go log into a fat client -- how does that work?
