Subject: [K12OSN] Pushing an application to a given group

Greetings from West Texas

I believe I have used the Webmin batch script enough times to load 
users into a system to be able to add a group of users, who in 
addition to the regular privileges, also belong to a group called 
TEACHRS (suggestions welcomed - I use 
create:username:userpwd:::username:/home/username:/bin/csh::::: for 
the base script)

What I really would appreciate some help with is creating a small 
script that would then push a given application (say its called 
IGPro) to the TEACHRS desktop *only*, much in the same way root is 
able to mass install flash, fonts, webmin itself, etc. from the 

I am deploying K12LTSP v.4.2.0 on a HUGE DELL server that is going to 
be accessible from any classroom at a campus (using VLANS) that I am 
hoping becomes a standard for the El Paso ISD.

My deepest gratitude to the folks that share their talent and time 
with this list and to the effort of providing accessible technology 
to students everywhere
