Wink GNOME Main Menu crashes no more :D


Hi Sean, thank you for your concern, and for your help.

The cause of this crash problem is first of all rooted in my lack of knowledge about the services on the server/client systems.

The solution was closer than I thought. Here is what I did (I have used GUI as much as I can).

Server.
1.Added a new User «student7» in YaST, after the LDAP PW. Typed User name, Password, Accepted nye next UID, accepted /home/student7, accepted 755, x-ed Empty Home Directory, accepted login shell /bin/bash, accepted the Default Group users, connected to a LDAP-Group and finished the registration.
2.In Nautilus I Created a Directory for student7 under /home together the other LDAP-Users. The properties on the student7 Directory looked exactly like the others (apart from Username).
3.Restarted the NFS service

Client.
1.Logged in as root.
2.Looked in /home with Nautilus. Watched the Properties on student7, and compared with two others. They looked all exactly like.
3.Looked in "Logout | Switch User", student7 was there.
4.logged in as student7, this did not crash.

Back to server.
1.In YaST, deleted all Users, apart from student7, and finished the registration as usual.
2.In Nautilus I deleted all Users apart from student7. Refreshed Nautilus.
4.Restarted the NFS service.

Client.
1.Logged in as root.
2.Looked in /home with Nautilus, only student7 was at present.
3.Looked in "Logout | Switch User", student7 was there alone.

Back to the server.
1.Added all my previous LDAP-Users in YaST, after the LDAP PW. Typed the old User names, old Passwords, old UIDs, old /home/student_x, accepted 755, x-ed Empty Home Directory, accepted login shell /bin/bash, accepted the Default Group users, connected to the appropriate LDAP-Groups and finished the registration.
2.In Nautilus I Created the old Directories under /home together with student7. The properties on the student7 Directory looked exactly like the other (apart from username).
3.Restarted the NFS service.

Back to the Client.
1.Logged in as root.
2.Looked in /home with Nautilus. Watched the Properties on student7, and compared with two others. They looked all exactly like.
3.Looked in "Logout | Switch User", all LDAP users was there.
4.logged in as different Users, this time nothing crashed.
5.Logged in as «student1»
6.Made a .odt document in OpenOffice and saved it in «student1´s» Home Directory.

Back to the server.
1.Checked the «student1´s» Home Directory, the .odt Document was there.
2.As root I made two Documents, one with the student1´s Properties, the other with roots Properties.
3.Refreshed Nautilus.

Back to the Client, student1.
1.Refreshed Nautilus, 3 .odt Documents, two to open, one not accessible.


This is what I want to have.


Obviously, I have made a corrupted config file somewhere.....

Regards

Firak
