old KDE /home partition in new GNOME context
due to perpetual Mandriva worsening by the day I have recently took the plunge into Ubuntu. So far it seems perfect for me, my hardware is supported, I am getting a very pleasant desktop experience from it (so to say, the situation has reversed from 3 years ago when Mandriva 2008 was the better choice over the Ubuntu of those times).
However, it did not occur to me that Kbuntu was the KDE version.. so I am now running Gnome Ubuntu. And hey, it is a nice Mac replica - I would like to stay on Gnome!
But! although I have mounted the old /home partition right onto its former /dev/sda5, Ubuntu Gnome would not allow me to log in with former Mandriva KDE user. The /home/my_old_user folder is still there...
Any way to keep my old KDE user in new distro on Gnome ? I am just guessing this would be the reason why Gnome does not see it - the old user account (because it comes from a KDE environment). Or ?
EDIT: I am now on kubuntu, and still can not access the old user account. How come ?
