View Full Version : [gnome] Machine specific themes ?

November 11th, 2009, 06:30 PM
Hello all,

I have a few computers running Ubuntus and I want them to share the same home/login folders over NFS.

The only thing is that I have a desktop and a netbook... Different screen real estate, etc.

So I would like to be able to have them store there theme/appearance/fonts/icons/etc. parameters in different folders.

Like ~/.desktop and ~/.netbook, or preferably ~/.machinehostname1 and ~/.machinehostname2

I am not familiar with gnome so I don't know how to deal with that. I was thinking of a parameter in "gdm.conf" but it doesn't seem to be the right place.

Any clue about such a setup? Is it feasible at all?

Thanks a lot!
