Context: 30 stations, all clones --- public kiosks; using Firefox. I'd like to be able to use fabric to deploy firefox + addons + user scripts to the stations that do not have it, or, need an updated version.
Concept: I already figured out the part about installing Firefox --- so, case closed there. As far as deploying addons and user settings/scripts ---
Couldn't one just sync the user's .mozilla directory in such a way that it preserved permissions? Addons and settings are kept in this directory, I believe. I've tried syncing the entire user directory but ran into what I think was just a permissions issue.
Has anyone done it this way? I don't want to mess with custom deb files. Did you use rsync? cpio/tar to preserve permissions?
