Sabayon – Manage multiple GNOME user profiles
Currently Sabayon is limited to the creation and update of user preference profiles. It does not deal with the very large problem of actually populating target system with those preferences.
So far Sabayon supports complete files and the configuration format for:
We are looking into or planning on adding support for the following:
Install Sabayon in ubuntu
sudo apt-get install sabayon
This will complete the installation
You can access it via the System -> Administration -> User Profile Editor menu entry
Once it opens click on Add New Profile
Once it opens you need to click on add
Set the profile's name and click on Add button
Select the profil and click on Edit button
Now A new session is opened with the Sabayon user in a Xnest window here Change the settings of the session as you want.
When you modify the session, the settings that you have changed appear in the monitor. For
each setting (line), you can choose if you want to ignore it, to put it mandatory or to put it by
-- To ignore it, notch « Ignore ».
-- To put it mandatory, notch « Mandatory ».
-- To put it by default, don't notch anything.
Then save the profile : -> Profile -> Save
it would be great if it works under intrepid and jaunty but it is broken and it doesn’t work so …
it’s a shame because if it would work it would be one hell of a tool. why doesn’t ubuntu pay some developers to pick this up ?
yepp. been broken for ages…
Yup, with the tremendous revenue Canonical receives from /giving away Ubuntu/, clearly they have funds to fix something this trivial. (/sarcasm) 😉
I agree it would be nice to see this fixed, therefore I would suggest going over to Fundable, starting up a bounty for fix it and take charge of this if it is important to you. Just saying…
Sabayon has been working fine for me in 9.4 since I submitted a replication of a bug that was submitted a long time ago, and then other people confirmed the same bug and someone fixed it. (very detailed explanation, I know…)
I remember trying it in 9.10 and seem to recall it working there as well, but have yet to try it in 10.04.
Just wanted to comment on this post since it is one of the first things that comes up on google
It is still broken on Natty. Have seen the same on 10.04 – pity, especially when it lacks something really small.
