user-setup 1.42ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


user-setup (1.42ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Add the initial user to the adm, lpadmin, and sambashare groups too.
      Do not add them to the audio, video, floppy, netdev, powerdev,
      scanner, or bluetooth groups.
    - Default passwd/root-login to false.
    - Create the spu group on powerpc/ps3 and powerpc/cell.
    - Make is_system_user always return false if OVERRIDE_SYSTEM_USER is
    - Add preseedable passwd/auto-login question; if set to true, configure
      gdm, kdm, lxdm, and lightdm for automatic login.  Add
      passwd/auto-login-backup question which backs up the previous contents
      of the files as well.
    - Ask whether the user wants to encrypt their home directory.
    - Allow forcing the encrypted home option.
    - If a user requests an encrypted-home, we must have their login
      passphrase, in order to wrap their mount passphrase; it's
      fundamentally incompatible to preseed encrypted-home AND a crypted
      password; if this happens, send the user back to password selection.
    - Zero out swap devices at the end of install when encryption is
    - Provide a progress message for wiping swap space.
    - If user-setup/allow-password-empty is preseeded to true, allow empty
    - Disable installation of pre-pkgsel.d/10kdesudo; it does nothing for
      Ubuntu, and causes a confusing message that worries some people.
    - Add weak password detection (purely length-based for now, matching
    - Consider a password of '!' in shadow for root to be unset.
    - Don't restrict guest login from login screen if autologin was
      configured, just restrict autologin for guest specifically.
  * Update Ubuntu-specific translations from Launchpad.

user-setup: Set up initial user and password

 This package creates an initial user, using the same code as is
 responsible for creating the initial user in the installer. It is only
 likely to be of any use if your system has no non-system users at all.
