The currently expected behavior of the GNOME 2.8 desktop on Fedora Core
3 is to pop-up a device when it is plugged in (eg. USB stick). But when
the user right-clicks and manually selects unmount, plugs out the device
and plugs it back in, it does not pop-up again. Instead, if the user
plugs out the device without an unmount notification to the desktop, the
desktop icon prevails and when clicked, generates an error.
What is the reason for this? ... and if there is a valid reason, how
does the user handle this situation more elegantly? After all, the user
might want to plug in the same device twice in a session.
What's the easiest way to edit one's local and global menu items in
Gnome? It appears the default Gnome distributed with FC3 doesn't have
any of the direct menu-editing functionality compiled in. I've been able
to modify my menu somewhat as root, by editing the files in
/usr/share/applications, but this is horribly obscure and unintuitive.
Is there a better way?

I have one project where the customer is migrating from Windows XP to
Linux . The main requirement for them is to access network shares as
they are accessing network shares in XP . In XP , a domain user can
browse the network and he can go into any computer which is part of the
domain . The user no needs to provide user name and password to access
network shares in XP ( provided by appropriate permissions ) . So, the
customer is expecting same thing from Linux.
In KDE , if i am browsing the windows network by using konqeror , you
can see all the domains in the network and machines which are part of
these domain . But , when i am trying access to one machine ,
username-password dialog box appears . After providing username &
password credentials , a user can go inside that machine and he can
access the shares which are in that machine . If you try to access same
machine second time , you won't get username-password dialog box .
Konqeror has capabilities to cache the password , but this is not
permenent for windows networks . Kwallet also doesn't helping me to
solve this issue.
I joined Linux to their domain , but still the problem exists . Please
any body can tell me how we can solve the problem . Is kwallet solve
this kind problems or is there is any way to solve this problem .
Actually , this is the common requirement for all customers who are
migrating from Windows to Linux .
Thanks & Regards,
