So I've installed Hardy... VERY nice.
But I have one strange behavior (maybe it's expected - how do I change
While I can run Administration->Users and Groups from the console GNOME
session and then properly press "Unlock" to get the rights to change
things there... if I do this from a VNC session from remote, "Unlock" is
greyed out, and effectively, I can't change users... Same thing for
configuring shares... and other things.
My guess is that somehow Ubuntu thinks that a VNC session is unsafe. But
I think otherwise (I tunnel my VNC through SSH)... so I'd like to enable
full administration regardless of where my GNOME session is connected from.
