This suggestion came from someone else. Pardon me if it is not too 
coherent :) 

If there is no home directory, it can't write to the home 
directory. (Well, yes...) If it can't write to the home directory,

gnome panel question

Hello-

i have 4 gnome-panels installed on my (gnome 2.6 fedora linux) machine with a
ton of applets and launchers on each panel (all neatly arranged). :-) in
preparation for when my hard disk crashes (which by the sounds of it could be
any day now), where is the config file stored for gnome-panel? i would like to
copy the file so that way when i reinstall, i will not have to manually add
each launcher and applet in the exact order that i have them now. so i'll be
able to quickly recreate my setup... i'm hoping the location of each icon on
each panel is stored in one particular place.  any help would be greatly
appreciated!!

mark. :-)

Does it exist a command to shutdown gnome in a clean way without user interaction ?

Hello,
my pc is shutting down every day at 4 A.M so each time, it seems to kill 
everything (result of the command shutdown -h now) but i would like it 
to quit properly my gnome session, so I looked into the gnome-session 
manpage and the panel manage but I didn't find anything about quiting 
properly gnome itself...

I was wondering if it exists a signal or something to make it quit 
without interaction from the user (at this time the user is sleeping) ?

Thanks for reading

Djamé

ps : where should I post usability advice related (the lack of "..." 
after the "preferences" entry menu is very, very weird because it opens 
a dialog box so it should be "..." just as the rest of the interface 
(and the rest of the world) , no ?)

Have a look at gnome-session-save. Excerpt of the manual page:

NAME
       gnome-session-save - Saves the current GNOME session (or terminates it)
       [snip]
       You can specify the --kill argument to terminate the GNOME session.

Good luck.

Starting Gnome problem

Hi folks,

FreeBSD 5.2

I encountered following problem in starting Gnome

1)
GUI login
=========
Each time login as user to start GNOME. It returned to GUI login. Starting KDE 
has no problem.

2)
Booted PC to multi-user mode

login as user
$ gnome-session
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Share object "libORBit-2.so.0" not found

$ su -
Password:
# cd /usr/ports/devel/ORBit2
make install clean

Rebooted PC to multi-user mode

$ pkg_info | grep -i orbit2
ORBit2-2.8.2 High-performance CORBA ORB with
support for the C language

$ gnome-session
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Share object
"libORBit-2.so.0" not found

Problem still there.

Kindly advise how to fix it. TIA
