Sabayon user screen to root and all users on install

Post by Casey » Fri Oct 12, 2007 2:06

When you install Sabayon, it does not carry the artwork and themes etc from the Sabayon user screen, over to root and all users on install of Sabayon.

root has the standard screen, and does not get the Sabayon user screen with the artwork and themes etc.

If it could be made so that root and all users get the same screen on install.

and the option of changing back to the Sabayon theme when you select another theme.

Why are you in the root account in the first place?

You don't have to log into your desktop as root to run programs as root. From the terminal, you can type

Code: Select all

su

enter your password, and then everything you do in that terminal will be done as root.

You should never login to X as root.
