So sorry, I know it's been a while, but I tested this and it seems to have worked! Only been able to test it out for about a week, but so far my customer's pay stubs have remained private. ;)

Thanks for the fix! I don't know what was going on, the PCs doing it are mostly relatively new (one is a Dell Vostro 3550). Oh well.

Well, this is a new package and doing a guest account in Xfce is a bit tricky, so I'm going to say this is just something that took a bit of trial and error on different machines to get just right :geek:

I'll release a new version of this package toward the end of November.

Awesome, sounds great. I'm still enjoying UberStudent as my main OS. My computer science instructor looked at my computer the other day and said ".....what in the world kind of operating system is on your laptop?", so I got to give the Linux speech for only about the hundredth time this semester. ;)

I too am using computers in a public setting and have run into a couple of issues....

1. I noticed on all the machines that one logs in as guest the Xtile 2.5 will will still be up and running and somehow users have been able to add items in that window. How to lock that down?

2. Log in as guest and the screen will just be blank with no icons etc etc and just a mouse pointer and can do nothing ....the guest profile somehow has become unusable. If I sign on as an administrator the session under the administrator runs fine. How to fix?

Thank you !

Please hit F12 on your keyboard in the UberStudent administrator account and run the following line in the terminal window:

Code:
dpkg -s uberstudent-guest-account-config

Let me know if the below line displays when you run the above command.
Code:
dpkg-query: package 'uberstudent-guest-account-config' is not installed and no information is available

If it DOES NOT display, the solution is simple: run all updates from the Update Manager.

I'm thinking you actually installed 4.0. I need to know for sure if this is the case. Following will give me the info I need:

Please hit F12 on your keyboard in the UberStudent administrator account and run the following line in the terminal window:

Code:
dpkg -s uberstudent-guest-account-config

Let me know whether or not the below line displays when you run the above command.
Code:
dpkg-query: package 'uberstudent-guest-account-config' is not installed and no information is available

Okay, so you initially installed from the 4.0 disk.

Then in that case running the following in a terminal should fix the issue:

Code:
sudo apt-get purge uberstudent-guest-account-config && sudo apt-get install --reinstall uberstudent-xfce-default-settings-enduser

Then reboot and the guest account should work as expected.

The x-tile issue is not left over from a former guest session. It is part of the new guest session.
