This got trapped by my spam filter and I just got it today.  If you haven't 
gotten an answer to this try

The tutorial is screenshot only, but I was able to follow it.  I found the 
whole mess flaky with Kubuntu.  art@localhost was user 1000, while art@domain 
was something like user 16645.  Occasionally temp & config files would get 
the wrong user's permissions and I wouldn't be able to start X without a 
chown -R.  I stopped using it.  If your experience is better, let me know as 
I would like to start using it again.
