 LinNeighborhood Configuration
 =============================
 
 Quick Start
 -----------
 
 In most cases it isn't necessary to configure every detail
 in the preferences to start browsing.
 In fact, there's only one 'must' in the preferences dialog:
 
  - workgroup
 
 It's very important to insert your machine's workgroup
 in this field. After doing you likely can start browsing.
 Sometimes you must do more ( -> master browsers ), take
 a look at the README for further details.
 
 
 
 Here are some global hints to configure LinNeighborhood:
 -------------------------------------------------------

 In fact, you have two possibilities to configure LinNeighborhood:
 
   *) local configuration (done by the users)
   *) global configuration (done by sysadmin)
 
 
 
 Local (user's) configuration files
 ==================================
 
 Normally LinNeighborhood does store the user's configuration
 in a subdirectory ".linneighborhood" in the user's home
 directory. For example if user schmidj's home is
 "/home/schmidj", the configuration parameters will be stored in
 the directory "/home/schmidj/.linneighborhood/" in
 several files. These files are:
 
 - 'hosts' -  storage place for the user's preferred hosts
 - 'masterbrowsers' - list of the user's additional master browsers
 - 'mountpoints' - list of memorized mounts
 - 'preferences' - parameters edited in the preferences dialog
 - 'size' - GUI parameters like window size + height ...
 
 Please don't edit this files, that's the job of
 LinNeighborhood.
 
 
 
 Global (sysadmin's) configuration file
 ======================================
 
 To make it more easy for SysAdmins to preconfigure something
 there's a global system configuration file.
 The path is "DATADIR/LinNeighborhood/preferences" with
 DATADIR = "/usr/local/share" as default. You can change it by
 defining the --datadir=... parameter while configuring of
 the source package.
 
 A user can change the pre definition to his own one, user's definitions
 have higher priority as global definitions.
 
 Example:
 If you want as SysAdmin to add a special preferred host to every
 user's GUI, just type the following line to the configuration file:
 
 pref_host = mozart
 
 After that the host 'mozart' will be inserted to every user's GUI.
 For more configuration parameters take a look to the local config files.
 
 
 
 Environment Variables in configuration
 ======================================
 
 In configuration parameters containing strings, like
 'root mount directory', it's possible to use system environment variables.
 
 Syntax:     "$ENV(variable_name)"
 
 It can be useful for global configurations, for example if you want
 to preset the user's default root mount directories in a special way:
 
 The SysAdmin has created a directory "/smbmount/" where the users should
 mount their directories in a manner like "/smbmount/user1/...." and so on.
 To do this just type the following into the global prefs file:
 
 root_mnt_directory = /smbmount/$ENV(USER)/
 
 The statement $ENV(USER) will be replaced by the value of the environment
 variable USER. If user schmidj mounts a share "mail" of the host "beethoven",
 it will be mounted by default to "/smbmount/schmidj/beethoven/mail/".
 
 
 
 For more aspects of configuration see the README file.
