Bug Description

Binary package hint: migration-assistant

On Intrepid i386 Final Live CD (created with bzr) install migration-assistant reports properly users on other Ubuntu Intrepid installs, but fails to import anything :
- wallpapers are not imported;
- bookmarks in Firefox aren't either;
- settings for thunderbird, settings for the desktop (themes, number of virtual desktop, keyboard shortcuts, etc...) are default one, not the user's;
- nautilus settings aren't imported;
- no account is imported at all, even if the users are selected - the user created at install is there, but the others aren't created by migration-assistant.

Hello Loic.
Thanks for submitting this bug and reporting a problem with Migration Assistant importing existing settings, bookmarks and accounts.

You made this bug report in 2008 and there have been several versions of Ubuntu since then.

Could you confirm that this is no longer a problem and that we can close the ticket? Or, if it is still a problem, could you come to Launchpad and make a comment to that effect?

Thank you again for helping make Ubuntu better.
