27 Hi Mick,
29 a shot into the dark:
30 Would it be possible, that not the profile as such has caused the
31 problem but the recompilation of such a lot of applications?
33 May be a default setup has discarded a path setting to your personal
34 settings of the application in question.
36 Try the following: "Fail and win" :)
38 Begin with the application, which is the one with is nearest to the
39 user -- for example the word processor or office syit.
40 Find the personal settings of that application and make a backyp of
41 it to a save place.
43 Load the config file/the ocnfig files and corrupt them (yes!).
45 Start the application.
47 If the application fails: Your settings will not be ignored.
48 If the application runs fine: You have found the application,
49 which was reset to "factory settings" via the recompilation.
51 Until you find that application step forward into the direction
52 of the printer (so to say) in choosing the application.
54 If you have found the application, which ignores ytour personal
55 setting you may have found the culprit.
57 From the backup restore the settings then start the application and
58 point it to uour settings.
60 Restart the application.
62 May be this way you can figure out, what has happen.
64 Cheers
65 Meino
