Re: [Evolution] autoconfiguration

What I would suggest would be to configure a default Evolution install for a test account

each user will need:

- a copy of ~/.evolution
- a copy of ~/.gconf/apps/evolution/*

however, you will need to modify some keys for each user, such as:


for the addressbook and calendar sources, you will need to modify the file:// uri to be that of the user's true home directory rather than the template's home directory

for mailer, you'll need to change:

- account name (defaults to the user's email address, but you can use any string you want)
- user's full name
- user's email address
- user's reply-to address (if specified)
- user's login name in the <url> tags (send & receive urls)

you could probably do it all with a sed script

Nobody? Does anybody know whether it's possible at all, or where I can
try to find an answer? Thank you in advance.
