Default extensions for ldap users

I am trying to follow the gnome sysadmin guide to apply default configurations for ldap users. I'm using gnome 3.8 on rhel 7.1 but am not able to get the configuration/extensions installed.

I copied all the extensions I want to use in /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions and set permissions to root:root 755 so all users should have access to use them.

I then added a file in /etc/dconf/db/local.d/ with the following content


favorite-apps=['google-chrome.desktop', 'firefox.desktop', 'nautilus.desktop', 'gnome-terminal.desktop', 'gnome-control-center.desktop', 'empathy.desktop']

finally I modified /etc/dconf/profile/user with this (because user home is on nfs)

and ran dconf update

However when I log into the system as a new users (no existing ~/.local/) the settings are not applied and the extensions do not appear to be available in tweak-tool. If I read back the value of enabled-extensions I get an error that the ~/.cache/dconf-service/keyfile/user does not exist and the default value is read instead which appears to be the distro default value and not the default I created.

Can someone point me to the correct documentation to get this working?

Thank you

Justin Garrison
