I setup Kerberos and LDAP for directory management at an institution for Ubuntu OS. I got LDAP configured correctly and Kerberos. The user's home directory is in an LDAP directory. When the user logs in, the process of authentication grants the user access to the computer. But they don't get write permission to the LDAP partition, which leads to the Desktop Environment (DE) being useless. From the command line, typing klog and providing the password fixes the problem, but from the DE, there is never a change to open a terminal to type klog. Of course, the expected behavior is for klog to be called during login so the user gets straight access to their LDAP directory.
Am I missing a package ? or should I just add klog somewhere in the login process ? (if so, where ? )
