I have just set up 20 XPP laptops all identically imaged as I have done for years.
I add them to the samba domain. Log on as a user with local administrator rights and everything is fine. If I log off and log on as a valid user that does not have any local privillages set then all the icons appear on the desktop but some, not all, just some are greyed out. Right mouse – preferences and the target box is now empty.
I completely reloaded a couple following the steps I have always and the problem still exists.
Wondering if it is an ownership problem. I know how to change the ownership of a folder to a user but how do I do a default reset so that all the ownership preferences for all users is returned to the correct setup.
Any other thoughts as to why I can no longer run programs unless he user is set as a local administrator?
These are not restricted programs. All have been installed for use by all users and all icons on the desktop are saved in doc and settings/all users/desktop
