Testing the SRS 5.4 Solaris desktop on x86 Solaris 11.1.
Why were such restrictive GNOME lock downs enabled for regular users by default?
As a regular user, simple preferences are unchangeable. You can't add icons to your desktop, you can't add icons to an existing panel, you can't add a new panel, you can't add launchers to panels, you can't adjust preferences for existing widgets (like the Workspace Switcher), etc.
Looks like a new GNOME gconf config source was introduced (gconf.xml.multi.user.desktop.mandatory) w/ the new Multi-User desktop pkg in SRS 5.4. Looks like the following restrictive parameters...
