    unity boot option, message file location?

    I am using Ubuntu 12.04. I accidentally changed the user and group of my root file system the other day. After I set it back, one lingering problem is that the text for the boot options (restart, shutdown, log out) is not rendering:



    (that image link isn't working - the file is visible on flickr : http://www.flickr.com/photos/aaronkyle/8038262007)

    I suspect this is just another permission thing, but I don't know where that file is stored to check. Could anyone help to point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance!

    UPDATE:

    I have continued to dig around. I finally found this thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/inde...t-1551669.html

    When I look at /usr/lib/indicator-session/gtk-logout-helper I see a bunch a characters (not written in human-readable format). The thread linked above suggests that I should be looking for a zenity script, but I haven't yet figured out where I should be looking.

    As a bit of additional information, that dialog box for shutdown appears fine for all my users; it just doesn't render when trying to shutdown when i am not logged in (e.g. prior to logging into an account).

    I'd really appreciate some further guidance!

    Thanks to all who are reading this.
