Re: running gdm off smb volume

Thank you for replying... It seemed to be a permissions problem  I changed
the way pam_mount handles the permissions to be wide open on the mounted
volume (dmask/fmask = 777) and it worked that way-- but I can't leave it
this way, since it's a terminal system and anyone could access anyone's
files while they are logged in.  Really only the individual user should
have any access to this directory...

Any ideas on what to do?  T.I.A., Dave

Re: running gdm off smb volume

sorry, my bad-- i was so excited that it worked at all i forgot to include
that info

this is the gdm that installs with rh7.2: version 2.2.3.1, last
modification in the change log was dated Jul 6 2001.

I attached part of /var/log/messages with a cutout of one of the logins
that didn't work.  The settings on the mounted share were dmask=700, and
fmask=777... i did an "ls -al" while logged into a terminal session and
found that all the files GDM uses were still 750 or lower for permissions,
while the surrounding files in the directory were rwx across the board.  I
don't know enough about linux and pam_mount and permissions to understand
why the difference... If I make dmask=777 everything works just fine. I'm
guessing the root of the problem is that the GDM user doesn't have rights
to view or read the gdm/x files. 

thank you

shortcut for hiding panels

Hi,

 Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut that will hide a panel. I
don't like auto-hide and I hate having to take my hand off the keyboard to
press the panel's hide button.

thanx,

libgnomecanvas problem

I'm trying to install gnome2 on slackware 8.1 and am getting a little annoyed 
about a problem I've got. When it comes to installing libgnomecanvas I'm 
getting the following error...

checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.3 libart-2.0 >= 2.3.8 pango >= 1.0.1 pangoft2 >= 
1.0.1... Package pangoft2 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `pangoft2.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'pangoft2' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.3 libart-2.0 >= 2.3.8 
pango >= 1.0.1 pangoft2 >= 1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the 
PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard 
prefix so pkg-config can find them.

I've got freetype2 installed. I've got pango installed. I've tried 
"./configure -enable-ft2" and "./configure -enable-pangoft2" with pango but 
for some reason nothing is working. I've tried time and time again 
reinstalling pango, freetype and libgnomecanvas but I'm still getting 
problems.

Can anyone help?

Why apps don't launch after a while until /restart/ session?


GNOME is great but sometimes xterm icon
and other apps will STOP launching with
mouse clicks....

When I do Ctrl-Alt-Bksp and log back
in (I use gdm)... then all is fine again.

What is getting "corrupted" in GNOME
as time goes on that requires a new session??

Chris
