[tdf-discuss] LibreOffice deployment and enterprise-wide settings


Hi,

I'm currently working on a LibreOffice deployment for 5K users and I want to
give the users access to corporate document templates + a few custom tweaks
like keyboard shortcuts, macro security level and so on.

The only way we found to do it is through the registrymodifications.xcu file
in the user profile.

It is a 2 step process:
1: LibreOffice is downloaded and installed to the computers (with admin
profile)
2:  After reboot, the user profile is removed and the 
registrymodifications.xcu file is put in place before LibreOffice is started
(we do this after a reboot so the current user profile is updated, we can't
do it at step 1 because it runs under admin profile and we can't easily find
the current user profile)

The process isn't very elegant, it looks more like a hack than industrial
deployment:

The .xcu file contains a lot of things, the only way I found to build a
custom one is to apply the settings "by hand" first and then find the lines
added in the .xcu file to build a "clean" one with only the lines required.
Keeping only  our settings seems OK but we lose all user configuration in
the process
It also requires a reboot which some users don't do often to avoid wasting
time with slow machines.


Is there a best way to apply a company-wide configuration that wouldn't
require reboot and would keep individual user settings?

Best Regards,
Eric Ficheux
