Description

gnome is a Puppet module that installs and manages a GNOME 2 or 3 installation.

This is a SIMP module

This module is a component of the System Integrity Management Platform a compliance-management framework built on Puppet.

If you find any issues, they may be submitted to our bug tracker.

This module is optimally designed for use within a larger SIMP ecosystem, but it can be used independently:

  • When included within the SIMP ecosystem, security compliance settings will be managed from the Puppet server.
  • If used independently, all SIMP-managed security subsystems are disabled by default and must be explicitly opted into by administrators. See simp_options for more detail.

Setup

To use the module with default settings, just include the class:

include 'gnome'

Usage

You can disable configuration of gnome by setting gnome::configure to false. The module will then only install Gnome.

This module makes heavy use of data. The dconf and gconf settings are all data-driven, and the defaults can be seen in the common.yaml.

You can use the knockout prefix of -- in front of a key to remove it from the Hash, like this:

gnome::dconf_hash:
  simp_gnome:
    --org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys:
    org/gnome/desktop/media-handling:
      --automount-open:

Or you can simply set it to the desired value.

Dconf settings are locked by default so that users can't change them.

This can be disabled on a per setting basis, like in this entry for wallpaper in gnome::dconf_hash:

gnome::dconf_hash:
  simp_gnome:
    org/gnome/desktop/background:
      picture-uri:
        value: file:///usr/local/corp/puppies.jpg
        lock: false

Reference

See the API documentation or run puppet strings for full details.

Limitations

SIMP Puppet modules are generally intended for use on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and compatible distributions, such as CentOS.

Please see the metadata.json file for the most up-to-date list of supported operating systems, Puppet versions, and module dependencies.

This module is compatible with GDM v2, v3.
