Description Moritz Muehlenhoff univentionstaff 2014-05-09 10:28:54 CEST
We have 

pam_mkhomedir.so umask=0066 skel=/etc/skel 

in /etc/pam.d/common-session

But the content of /etc/skel is currently not added to the home directory if a user logs into the UCC KDE desktop, e.g. .bashrc is missing in a freshly created home.

For some reason it's working when logging in via SSH, in that case the /.bashrc is created.

Maybe it helps if the 

pam_mkhomedir.so umask=0066 skel=/etc/skel 

is additionally present in /etc/pam.d/lightm?
Comment 2 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-05-12 13:24:18 CEST

univention-copy-region-info from univention-ucc-session-xenapp creates the home dir in a light session-setup script, before pam_mkhomedir. Added mkhomedir_helper to univention-copy-region-info.


pam_kwallet breaks pam_mkhomedir. Removed pam_kwallet from lightdm pam file.

The home directory is now created correctly with /etc/skel being in place
