Re: [K12OSN] LTSP Customization



Do you want the icons--or more precisely the apps those icons call--to launch automatically at login? Or just that the folder opens and shows the icons?

Would it be possible to create a folder, place a bunch of launcher icons in there and have it 'ran' at log in. I would need the folder and its icons to be launchable but be protected from deletion.

Maybe a sym link would work?

I don't know if there's any documentation on this per se, but what you can do is create a user ID, say, 'default', then login with that ID, make the changes you want to the desktop, panel, menus, etc. Then logout. Login as yourself, su - to root, cd to /home/default, and copy the .config, .nautilus, .gconf, .gnome2, and .gconfd directories to /etc/skel/ (not all of these directories may exist, depending on what you've changed). When new user IDs are created, they will get those directories in their respective $HOME directories and you'll get the desired effect.

Can anyone point me to any documentation on modifying the desktop and links etc that are delivered to users the first time they log in? I want to add a "window" to mimic the Novel Application window and populate it with some links for the initial pilot of LTSP in our schools. This is with EduBuntu specifically.

Thanks!
