    Default Initial reactions on Linux

    Summary: Very nice application. I even wrote a blog post about it, here:

    I tried the Linux version, Fedora Core 6, latest w/updates

    Minor annoyances:
    * Probably should inform users that they need to chmod +x then run it such as ./
    * No auto-detection of where my web browser is, by default. I had to specify it.
    * Upon specifying it, the application just closed. I was doing this in Workspace 1 and i thought it had crashed. In fact, it had already opened up the config tool in Workspace 3 (where my browser was).

    Everything else just worked. Highly impressed. Syncing took some time, but it was just amazing.

    Now, installing it into ~/zimbra/zdesktop is dandy, but what happens when I reboot? Do I need to run ~/zimbra/zdesktop/zdesktop to get things going? By the looks of it, that's a yes. So maybe automatically linking a shortcut to ~/Desktop will make more sense (i.e. make it more user friendly)

    OK. Keep up the good work, and thanks for a rocking product.

    Thanks for your post and the blog entry.

    If you have any comments, enhancements, problems or RFEs then the place for them is bugzilla - that will help improve the product.

    On Linux you will need to run "zdesktop start". We've automated startup on windows and mac, but haven't decided what to do with linux. We'll probably tie it to user login rather than system startup.
