Global Addons/Langpacks

Post by Lord_Brezel » 2015-11-30, 14:20

Where are the proper locations to put LanguagePacks and Addons for system wide installation?
I have put them in /opt/palemoon/browser/extensions, but they dont seem to be picked up on first launch.

Did you get a warning of new addon install when you launched Pale Moon or did nothing happen?

also do you have Pale Moon installed on /opt? (just to be sure..)

Did not get a prompt for installing.
Yes /opt/palemoon

Guess I will premake a profile that gets copied into /etc/skel
But then I will still not be able to update extensions systemwide because skel only gets used on usercreation.
And have to be privileged in order to update shit. Meh thats annoying.
Could outright make an entire package for the exts and a config update script that propagates systemwide changes to userprofiles.
All complicated.
Isnt there an easy way to autodeploy and manage Palemoon?

Try using /distribution/extensions under the application dir, not just /extensions

I want to bypass the installation prompt. I read about the extensions database file. But for example installed extensions are somehow unpacked into a folder with an UID as name. Does it matter if they are unpacked?

You may want to have a look at Mike Kaply's blog, specifically: https://mike.kaply.com/2012/02/09/integ ... o-firefox/

Please understand that you can only do this for private deployments, e.g. for you only or within a closed organization, or when not using official branding if you're publicly distributing Pale Moon this way. All other deployments will need my permission.

@redistributionrestrictions

Sure thing, its only for internal use. I wont spread modded Palemoon packages on the internet without asking you. But I consider rebranding it anyway just for the sake of it.

Perfect :) Thank you.

Just seems like lately especially I have had to remind just about everyone of this :P -- nothing personal, just making sure it's understood.
