    Default Appearance for non-root users. There's no dragon in the menu.

    Hello.

    I hope i'm not asking once more time a frequently asked question, but i just can't find any topic about my problem.
    (And I'm sorry for my english, I'm french)

    I've created a non-root user with the 'adduser' program.
    When I launch a graphical interface ('startx'), there is no way for getting the root theme (with dragons in the menu).

    There are 'Dust','DustSand', 'New Wave' (~the root theme) as choices in the Appearance Preferences.

    with 'ls /usr/share/icon' i can see more folders the these three and the 'bt-icons' folder is reachable (not 'root locked')

    Any idea ?

    BackTrack has been designed to be run as root. We do not encourage for any other users to be added.
    Have you...g0tmi1k?
