View Full Version : Default Profiles for domain users

June 20th, 2014, 09:30 PM
Hey everyone! Feel free to move this thread to a different topic if someone has already done it, but I can't find anyone who has.

I am setting up some machines for a lab at my organization, and I have tied them to our domain so any of our domain users can log in. I want to make it so each new user who logs on gets a customized default profile (i.e. custom background with organization logo, set of programs pinned to start menu) instead of getting the original profile with the purple\orange background. I have tried making a new user account and customizing it to my liking and then changing the /etc/useradd.conf file to point to that users home directory. Every time a new user is made it will copy that custom profile for the new user so they will get the background and color setup. It works, but only for local users. I just want to know how to make the new domain user profiles pull from this custom profile as well. This is in Ubuntu 12.04

Does this even make sense to anybody?
