General Linux Q: How to synchronize settings between instances of Ubuntu?
Hi all. I'm new to Ubuntu and am running instances of 10.10 in four places.
Very quickly, it becomes apparent that this is now four different machines to maintain.
I understand how certain directories can be kept in sync using Ubuntu One, Dropbox, or something rsync-based.
What I'd like to know is if there is an effective way of keeping system-settings synchronized (for example, installed packages, desktop configuration, Thunderbird configuration, etc., etc.). Almost like the Windows equivalent of a roaming profile.
Are these items all kept someplace that's accessible that I could simply synchronize or am I asking for trouble? Certainly, I'm not the first person to run into this situation--
