  1. Re: Member id confusion / old tutorial II

    Yes, today it seems to be possible. Thanks for giving me back the access to customize my account.

    Excellent! Better than just dropping it, since that would break links out there.
  2. Re: Member id confusion / old tutorial II

    I can't send PMs since that function is turned off on my account and I don't seem to have access to turn it on.

    Anyway, for now I'll just add a note that the tutorial is deprecated together with a...

    Re: Customize guest session

    The tar guest-session-prefs-lightdm-0.12.tar.gz works fine on my 12.04. You may want to provide some more details about the nature of your problems.

    Re: Customize guest session

    I think it's intentionally prevented via AppArmor.

    No. "disable_app()" prevents automatic startup of applications that otherwise would have been automatically launched at startup. It does not prevent the user from launching those applications 'by...

    Nice catch, Paul. I proposed that change of the source for lightdm in Ubuntu, and it was just approved. It means that next release will include such a trailing slash, so you may want to change...

    You're welcome, and thank you.



    I'm not aware of any documentation besides the source code. And that's not easy to grasp. :neutral:

    Seems like I'm the one who missed things. :(

    A working way to do what you want, without a need to redo it after each lightdm update, seems to be to create /etc/guest-session/prefs.sh and add these...

    Re: Customize guest session

    A disadvantage with editing a package file is that it needs to be redone after each upgrade. Probably better to create a symlink.


    sudo ln -s /home/luser /etc/guest-session/skel

    Well, unless you want that setting by default also for newly created regular users, you'd better use /etc/guest-session/skel instead. See the Alternative approach section in the tutorial.

  15. Re: Please hide profile info for us with < 50 posts
