Hello. I have been using Fedora 15 x64 for a short while now, after having switched from Ubuntu which was really starting to annoy me. Now for some reasom, fedora has stopped to ask me for root access when I try to perform root-level tasks from the GUI while running Gnome 3 in fallback mode (which I think is pretty ugly, just less ugly than Gnome 3, I want G2 back). Because of this, I can't simply install things by just doubleclicking their packages (so far I have been able to install packages from the command line, which gratually still prompts me for root access, so this is not a big deal in itself). What I really find annoying is that I can't enter things like my Account settings, and add or remove people, and other such things, in my Gnome 3 Fallback mode. It does prompt me in Gnome 3's normal extra-ugly-mode.
Also, I have a problem with Compiz (if possible I would like to use compiz instead of metacity). When I start Firefox, it crashes my Compiz, which then restarts, but the lower bar (the one on which my windows appear) stays completely black.
In the login screen, a user can choose with which GUI he wants to boot. Does anyone know how to make some GUIs inaccessible to certain users? In this case, I want to make an account that can only boot using XMBC, and not using Gnome, giving it limited access, so random strangers can not screw around with my laptop too much, while allowing me a quick password-free boot into a nice media center interface.
Can anyone help me resolve these problems?
