Re: [K12OSN] k12linux login issues

The solution is iptables which I had turned off for testing ... adding
them back and enabling masquerading and now it works.

There are still a couple of things that are not quite right though
with FF, Totem, Java, Flash as a local app though.  The most annoying
is an error message everytime I launch FF as the local app. It is
apparently related dbus_launch and orbit files?  I am not sure how to
get around that though.  It started after I added Totem as the media
player (done so that I'd have the same media player as FC10 uses by

But this is working much better even though it isn't exactly a
turn-key operation. Thanks for the excellent work!
