Yeah Brick that makes sense but the issue still remains that the default profile that I save in /etc/skel doesn't work. When I create a new user and then log in as that user, X will start but the profile doesn't get any further then a black screen with a mouse cursor on it.
I'm certain that Tex himself wrote a post for the proper configuration procedure for the default user. I searched for it in the forum but nothing turned up. I remember there being a lot of talk that KDE 4 doesn't use the /etc/skel folder (like KDE3.5) but I remember Tex saying "This is how you do it" and he explained it. But like I said, I can't find that post.
Any input guys on this would be much appreciated.
