Adjusting the xguest homedir

xguest is using a tool called sabayon to setup the home directory.

http://www.gnome.org/projects/sabayon

Every time you login the gnome scrips execute sabayon-apply which reads
/etc/desktop-profiles/users.xml

for a mapping between the login user name and the sabayon zip file

cat /etc/desktop-profiles/users.xml







You will see the xguest.zip file there. If you want to modify the xguest login, you need to install sabayon (gui) tool, and run it. You can then select the xguest.zip file and change the gnome session on login.

Is sabayon is working for you in F8?
When i edit xguest some selinux errors appear then it fails on saving...
Any alternatives?

This configuration for the debug log can be re-created
by putting the following in /root/sabayon-debug-log.conf
(use ';' to separate domain names):
