Default Linux Config

Sigh.. notes to self on the standard steps when installing a fresh ubuntu desktop:

  • Preserve shotwell indexes: backup/restore ~/.local/share/shotwell
  • add multi user xhost access: add ‘xhost +SI:localhost:testusers >& /dev/null’ to .bash_rc
  • Pulse audio:  copy default.pa to ~/.pulse and add ‘load-module module-native-protocol-tcp auth-ip-acl=127.0.0.1’ to the end. In all test accounts that need audio access, add ‘default-server = 127.0.0.1’ to ~/.pulse/client.conf
