Re: [trinity-devel] First Trinity 3.5.12 Usability Test (samba)

Regarding the following messages I see when I start Trinity and create a new profile:

params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file "/root/.smb/smb.conf.append":
	No such file or directory
Using netbios name {HOSTNAME}.
Using workgroup {WORKGROUP}.

I have been unable to determine what is accessing samba. Here is the strange part, repeatable in both 3.5.10 and Trinity:

Start KDE or Trinity with no profile. A new profile gets created.

Exit and notice the xsession-errors log contains the samba related messages.

Restart KDE/Trinity.

Disable all KDE daemon startup services. Exit KDE/Trinity.

Restart KDE/Trinity. No samba related messages.

Reenable all KDE daemon startup services.

Exit. Restart. No more samba messages. Cannot reproduce the messages.

I tried running strace startx but the smb.conf related messages do not get captured.

The best I can guess is this is related to some kind of First Login code.
