Which user? All users? Should each user have a separate copy? Normally, per-user configuration files would be created by that user. An example could go into /usr/share/<packagename> where a user could copy it into their home directory. You could also install something into /etc/skel; the contents of this directory are normally copied into a new user's home directory when the user is created. Keep in mind that that while many Debian installations are effectively single- user, that Debian is designed to support multiple users and to move cleanly from having one real user to many real users. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
