Hello Mates,

i woul'd like to make "ln-s /path/file" to every Users/home. Has anyone
an Idea?

No !.. that's nonsense, it is responsability of the application to do
this the right way. not of the rpm package.

And it would not really work with NFS/NIS homes. It could even get considered
as an attack, if a single workstation tries this on the server.

Never ever change something directly in home directories.

Desktops like KDE have own mechanisms to adapt settings on login time, if
needed. But a link would be just bloat IMHO.
