Samba Panel Vanished in Gnome (Centos)


I have been having some slight issues with samba. It works and serves files to my OSX fine, and has been for months. Rarely, I have a login permissions issue that is unexplainable, but not a big deal.

The problem is that the SAMBA Panel GUI under gnome vanished (Centos 4.3). It has been there in the past but, poof, no more. For example when I go ..System Setting--Server Settings--Samba nothing happens (no menu shows up). But when I go for the .... HTTP, NFS or "SERVICES" selection, I get the gui config menu.

The reason I ask is because I need to figure it out before I tackle my finicky SAMBA recylcer problem.

Any ideas on a fix?

I had this problem a while back (First time i ever used gnome = traumatic experience)

I found permission (Readonly) errors were in my home directory i never found where exactly so i just redid the whole directory

chown -R username:group /home/username/*

Hmmm.. it seem like when I login as root, that it shouldn't be a permissions issue (because the service actually runs fine, the gui is wrecked). I tried the permissions thing on the my nonroot home directory and it did not fix it?

Any other ideas?
