NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     EZsetup - login for basic system setup and	user environment configuration

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     EZsetup, also referred to as System Setup,	provides basic system
     administration and	user account configuration.  EZsetup eases first-time
     set up of a new IRIX system or of a new user account.

     In	IRIX 6.5.14, EZsetup's appearance (layout and colors) was modernized.

     Logging in	as EZsetup launches a web-based	application running in a
     customized	version	of the webviewer browser from which users can do the

     1.	Set up some basic system security

     2.	Set up basic networking

     3.	Add a user to the system

     4.	Configure World	Wide Web Access	for the	user added in step 3

     5.	Configure portions of the Desktop for the user added in	step 3

     Steps 1-3 are accomplished	via the	graphical system administration	tools,
     available during a	normal login session from the System Manager
     (/usr/sysadm/bin/sysmgr).	Steps 4	and 5, the World Wide Web Access and
     Desktop Configuration tools, are custom to	EZsetup, however they both
     specify which desktop applications	can be used to change the settings
     after logging in.

     Step 4, the World Wide Web	Access portion,	allows the user	to set up
     their web access, including default web page when the browser is
     launched, SOCKS server, proxy server and Java/Javascript default

     Note that the configuration files format is determined by the version of
     the Netscape browser installed on the system in /usr/lib/X11/netscape at
     the time that EZsetup is run.  Netscape 3 and Netscape 4 preference file
     formats are supported.

     Step 5, the Configure Desktop portion, allows the user to choose between
     two configurations	that cause the desktop to behave more like a UNIX
     environment or a Mac/PC environment.  In the former, system notifications
     appear in the system console, windows receive implicit focus when the
     mouse enters their	borders	and the	toolchest appears in a vertical
     orientation.  In the Mac/PC configuration style,  system notifications
     appear in a separate dialog box which pops	up when	appropriate,  the user
     must click	in a window for	it to receive input focus, and the toolchest

     appears in	a horizontal orientation.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     In	order for the web and desktop configuration changes to be made,	the
     user account must be created with a home directory	that is	writable by
     that user at the time EZsetup is run.

     You must log in to	the EZsetup account to use the EZsetup application; it
     cannot be invoked from a shell.  Also note	that EZsetup can be run	from
     the Entryspace section of the O2 OutOfBox Experience .

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]



     Configuration files created by EZsetup which are processed	and removed
     the first time the	user logs in.
