SLED v 10 - ldap autenticated user gets no window manager!
I am new with LDAP. Be warned! I modified the config file to be able to authenticate via LDAP on our network, and when I tried to log in via gdm it errored out saying my home directory doesnt exist.
My solution was to
sudo mkdir /home/username && chown -R username /home/username
1. Is this the correct way to implement a LDAP user on a machine? Or should I actually add the user and somehow set up the user profile to use LDAP? not sure here....
Anyways, the box let me log in once I created username's home directory, however there is no window manager when the desktop loads!
I have been firing up a terminal and running metacity to get around this, but that is getting very annoying.
2. Is there a way to add metacity to be an auto started application or is there something profoundly wrong with how I hacked this setup?
Thanks in advance!
