Ubuntu :: Change The Default GNOME Configuration For New Users?
Aug 22, 2010
I'm looking to customize the environment for new users by changing the items in the GNOME menu, change the panel layout, add some shortcuts, and do a few other things. I looked in /etc/skel and there doesn't seem to be anything GNOME related in there; I also tried to put .gconf, .gconfd and .gnome2 from my home directory into /etc/skel and that didn't do what I wanted.
I would like to make LXDE the default desktop for ALL USERS on my LTSP clients. There are about 60 users so far.On my server, LXDE is default for everyone.But on the clients, each user has to change to LXDE individually. How can I make LXDE default on all clients?I've been looking through the forums all day, but could not find an answer to this question, so hopefully we can get an answer and my title will help others.

I need to set up quotas so each user has a limit of 20GB (soft could be 15GB) on their homes.Is there a way to set up a default quota for all the users, or do i have to do this for the 345982374058 users in my system manually?would group quotas help? (i dont understand much of these type of quota)
I'm looking for a manner to prevent users from changing the desktop background/wallpaper and all other gnome configuration with booth Ubuntu and Kubuntu. This too (Abraxis, some years ago, have same my problem) [URL] do not solve the problem, for example if I change whit chown (*) own and group of this file to root /.gconf/desktop/gnome/background/%gconf.xml, at the next reboot file return in the previous state. (I don't like Pessulus). (*) chown root:root %gconf.xml chmod 644 %gconf.xml At the reboot file change automatically owner to "student", I don't know why?
I recently went through a desktop crisis after removing unity from 11.04, installing openbox, hating it, and then installing Gnome 3. What's weird is certain applications like chrome and some other system things appear to use the theme I have (as in, they look nice) but windows like terminal, file browser, and most other applications including the default log in screen all look like windows 95.
you can see the square unstyled buttons. I'm just wondering how to apply a full on system theme to apply to all windows in gnome 3. tweak-gnome didn't look like it could do it, and after running through the themes (redmond, clearlooks, etc) they didn't have any impact on these windows.
i have created a wordpress user with a symbolic link from his home (/home/wordpress) to /usr/share/wordpress but when wordpress ftps to wordpress home dir it does not follow the sym-link. is there a way to set default ftp dir for the wordpress user to /usr/share/wordpress rather than /home/wordpress?
I'm using CFEngine 2.2.8 to configure a network of Debian servers, the servers have two interfaces eth0 and eth1, how can I configure cfagent to take as the default interface eth1? eth0 is the internal interface and eht1 is the one with the public IP, I need to define classes based on lists of public IPs and it would be really helpfull if I could use functions as IPRange that only consider IP in eth0 interface.
After trying to backup my hard drive on my HP Mini 210-1054TU notebook PC, On start up the users menu comes up (A little changed) and when I sign in it comes back with a window flag that say: The configuration defaults for GNOME power manager have not been installed correctly.I can booth with a stick and see my files and directory but, I am not allowed to open any. There is no access to a terminal or anything but, the users menu. It appears to take the password as, if not right, it would say so but, only comes back with same menu and window flag.Ironic, I was trying to backup my files so I would not lose them.
I have got Ubuntu with Xfce installed, and I would like to change default session to Gnome, or LXDE (depending on if my computer would run it properly). Looks like there is no options button while logging in, or anything similar.
I got some trouble with suspending/hibernation using gnome or mate. None of them can suspend the T450 correcly neither to disk nor to ram. If I run pm-utils from a terminal pm-sleep and pm-hibernate work fine both. So I guess all I need is to change the commands which are run by clicking on the suspend or hibernate button, but how to change what is behind the GUI.
In other Linux distros I've used, new users are assigned to their own group (i.e. user 'joe', group 'joe') by default. To my surprise, when I create new users with my openSUSE 11.4, they are all assigned to the 'users' shared group by default.To test this, I created a new user called 'friends'. From my terminal, I can see how the new user files look like:
joe@linux:~> ls -l /home/friends/ total 40 drwxr-xr-x 2 friends users 4096 Sep 3 11:37 bin
A week ago I opened this thread viewtopic.php?f=17&t=61580 in "Board index ‹ Help ‹ Installation" and asked for a moderator to move this to here. Because it hasnt happened up to know, I am reopening the thread here. It would be reeeeally great if somebody could help me with my problem!

Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I am trying to figure out how to set a custom default background so that any user that logs onto the machine (via our LDAP server) will see the background that I have set to be default.
I am extremely new to Ubuntu (mainly a Windows person) but am trying to create this environment to give our students an option to boot either into Windows or Ubuntu.
I have about 5 users for our desktop computer, 1 adult, 3 kids and me (I don't count as an adult ).
There are some settings I want to have each of the environments default to, where they can then change them as they wish on their own.
Instead of setting them one-at-a-time, is there a way to modify the settings on the template of what goes into a user's /home directory when they are created?
Examples: Set it so when I add a person to the system theirdefault browser is set to Firefox starting home page is to our local server Open/Libre Office defaults to MS Office formats And others, less important ones like their pictures are placed in a centralized directory, not their own ~/Pictures.
After this initial setting, they are able to change any and all of these settings on their own, but to have these as default helps me set up their environments to get them started.
I am building a livecd, the live user created at boot time is a member of the audio group set in /etc/group. This way works for the livecd but when installed a user must manually add himself to the audio group. How can I set new users to automatically become a member of the audio group? In /etc/default/useradd I can set only one group.
