    sudo apt-get install ofris

    English:

    I will be testing this. What I have done for my guest account is create a guest.orig folder with all the settings and made a bash script to remove the and copy the original data on reboot. This is a space hogger and I am glad that there is a better method.

    hello,

    i administer a computer lab and am excited to see this available for Linux. does it just freeze the /home folder, or will it restore all administrative changes a user makes?

    this is important for me to know, since it will affect how i set up my user accounts...

    regardless, i will test it and post back!

    much thanks

    ethan

    He set it up to only freeze to home folder. I can hack it to do the entire system, but it requires having double the disk space as this makes a copy of the folder in /etc/.ofris/.

    I will only hack if he releases ofris under an OSI comparable licence, preferably the BSD Licence.
