User Profile....

When I open the User Information Window, there is no save button. I'm using Fedora 14, I'm sorry, my IPS doesn't support Linux so I in Windows writing this so I don't know which kernel I'm using.

Any suggestions?

Do you mean "System-->Preferences-->About Me"?

I just fired up Fedora 14 in VirtualBox and, yes, there is no Save button. Sometimes, that means the "Close" button is enough, but I tried entering some information and it did not save.

I don't normally use Fedora, so I don't know whether this is a bug or a feature.
