Bug#717263: debian-edu-config: No longer default Iceweasel start page from LDAP
In Squeeze, Debian Edu had a feature where it would set up the default
Iceweasel home page based on a URL fetched from LDAP. This allowed
schools to set up their school home page as the default browser startup
page by only updating the labeledURI value in the
dc=skole,dc=skolelinux,dc=no LDAP object once in LDAP. The code to do
this is in /usr/share/debian-edu-config/tools/update-iceweasel-homepage.
It will fetch the URL, store it in
/etc/iceweasel/browserconfig.properties and divert the file
/usr/share/iceweasel/broweserconfig.properties to have the generated
configuration. This feature is no longer working in Wheezy.
We should figure out how to set this up to work again in Wheezy.
I've found a recipe on
<URL: http://mike.kaply.com/2012/08/29/setting-the-default-firefox-homepage-with-autoconfig/ >,
but when I try to follow it, nothing changes.
Anyone got a clue how to change the default home page for already
created users? I suspect it involve creating a firefox extention (ie a
xpi file), but have no idea what its content should be.
Anyone know how Ubuntu or Fedora do this?
