Manage multiple GNOME user profiles Using Sabayon

Sabayon is a system administration tool to manage GNOME desktop settings. Sabayon provides a sane way to edit GConf defaults and GConf mandatory keys: the same way you edit your desktop. Sabayon launches profiles in an Xnest window. Any changes you make in the Xnest window are saved back to the profile file, which can then be applied to user’s accounts.
Currently Sabayon is limited to the creation and update of user preference profiles. It does not deal with the very large problem of actually populating target system with those preferences.

So far Sabayon supports complete files and the configuration format for:
  • GConf
  • Mozilla/Firefox
Install Sabayon in ubuntu
sudo apt-get install sabayon
This will complete the installation
Using Sabayon
You can access it via the System -> Administration -> User Profile Editor menu entry
Once it opens click on Add New Profile
Once it opens you need to click on add
Set the profile’s name and click on Add button
Select the profil and click on Edit button
Now A new session is opened with the Sabayon user in a Xnest window here Change the settings of the session as you want.

When you modify the session, the settings that you have changed appear in the monitor. For
each setting (line), you can choose if you want to ignore it, to put it mandatory or to put it by
default.
- To ignore it, notch « Ignore ».
- To put it mandatory, notch « Mandatory ».
- To put it by default, don’t notch anything.
Then save the profile : -> Profile -> Save
