#153 fixed Do something clever with ~/.xsession-errors so that the dialog box is useful jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 15 years ago.


Currently, when logins fail, gdm will happily write the error log to ~/.xsession-errors and then refuse to open it to show it to the user, because it has no tokens. While it is possible to go log in to another machine remotely and view the file, that kind of sucks for login debugging, especially. Selecting a Failsafe GNOME session won't necessarily help, either, if .xsession-errors is complaining about the login volume lying around.

In /etc/X11/Xsession, $ERRFILE is set to $HOME/.xsession-errors. I wonder if in /etc/gdm/Xsession or the PreSession?, we could change this variable to point somewhere else, somewhere that gdm would be able to read the file.

Presumably it's also a bug that gdm opens that error window in a session that doesn't have tokens, and we should report that, but we should also try to fix this before summer.

#154 fixed We should implement a zenity dialog for people who are running tracker jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 15 years ago.


As per ATN-30, we should implement a zenity dialog (like we do for people with mode 777 homedirs) that checks for EnableIndexing?=true in ~/.config/tracker/tracker.cfg. It should say something like "You currently have the Tracker indexer enabled. This is known to break AFS. You can disable it by doing $foo".

$foo can either be something like "athrun consult fix-tracker", or we could decide that the number is small enough we should point them at a stock answer on how to edit the file instead.

I note we currently have /etc/X11/Xsession.d/97debathena-homedir-mode. Rather than having a separate script, would it be better to lump these all together in something like debathena-warn-users or something?

#156 fixed Everything should check ATHENA_USER broder broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


We've established $ATHENA_USER as your Athena username when it's distinct from $USER.

debathena-dotfiles will currently set ATHENA_USER=$USER if it's otherwise unset, but I think that the various clients that check $USER should be modified to check $ATHENA_USER first in case debathena-dotfiles isn't installed.
