Now that I am back form the final month of studies, which stalled my progress for good 4 weeks, some things in my initial plan has changed. After some consultation with my mentor on how to implement the creation and management of user profiles, it was decided, that I should integrate it into gnome-control-center user management (in account type, to be precise) and form here see, if it is working out. I couldn’t find any g-c-c documentation and comments in code are few and far between, so I have to rely on my investigation skills here, but I think I have figured the system out, so some hard results should be coming soon.
While this sounds rather easy, I found out, that jhbuild on Ubuntu system is an uphill battle, so after a some advice form fellow gnome developer, I installed Fedora 17 on my laptop and will see how it will turn out. Right now I am in step 18 of 94 and have no idea, why some sqlite patch is missing.
This is it for now.
