Hi
I'm currently setting up a linux terminal server for my school's computer lab. Our school is mostly Microsoft based so I'd like each user to have the following settings to make switch as transparent as possible. The default settings for each account should save and restore files in the corresponding Office format. Second, I'd like to change the default tab settings to .5 inches. Finally, I'd like to change the default rulers from cm to inches and add a vertical ruler.

Is there any way that I could set this as the default setting and have every new account create copy these settings? With hundreds of accounts it is a serious pain to log in and muck through all of these settings by hand.

Thanks in advance
Paul

Response files may help with what you're looking to do. See this StarOffice resource:

I believe OOo works the same way.

it is all possible, as you will do a network installation, and than do a user instalation for everyone.
that user installation is 5 mb for each user. and it will start with the settings that OOo has in the workstation installation
