Description Leslie Satenstein 2006-10-26 18:14:46 EDT
Description of problem:

All users who choose Gnome have the same menu, by default­. Similar rule for kde

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Enroll a user

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

It would be nice to have two menu templates for each GUI interface. One, which
is for administrators, and a second, for normal/guest users.  The latter
template would not have system tools on it.

The templates could be bound to a user group. That way, by assigning a user a
specific group, he would receive that specific version of a template.
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-03 11:03:17 EDT
You could probably get some of this effect by shipping customer .menu files in

I agree there's no easy way to do this, though.  On the other hand, I don't
think we're going to have resources to work on this in the near future, so I'm
going to close the bug out.

You might want to propose the idea upstream.
