Exactly, my conclusions after working sometime on this issue is the same: we need user groups, then menu profiles for those groups , then desktop-profiles to join both (just using /etc/xdg/menu/applications-merged doesn't work because of the bad place of the "<DefaultMergeDirs/>" line in current gnome/kde-applications.menu files) > > > So, if the right profiles are installed in the system, with > > apt-get install <application> > > the user will see the application in a different branch depending of the > > system groups he belongs. > > I did not dived very deeply into this but does "system group" > here UNIX group or is this even transparent for LDAP using systems etc.? > I think so, I don't see any reason for a more complicated solution. I did my tests for education using students & teachers unix groups (under LDAP) with desktop-profiles and it works perfectly. Regards, José L.
