> I had a problem while installing Manjaro 0.8.9, Editions: XFCE, Openbox. The problem is that during the installation I'm using an existing separate /home partition. The problem with that is that the manjaro preconfigured file in /etc/skel/ are never copied into my /home directory and thus I'm left with vanilla xfce or vanilla openbox.
> I believe this problem occurs because the files in my /home directory are assigned to my old user (from the previous install) and the user is not able to write into the directory. I'm not sure though.
> Eventually I installed manjaro without separate /home directory and after that copied the created conf files into my old /home partition, edited fstab and I'm not happy and running manjaro WITH separate partition for /home.
