Set up a customized new user template
Authored by: marook on Oct 20, '11 06:58:17AM

1: Still valid for 10.7 Lion.

2: Remeber to NOT copy(or remove) the Login.keychain on the account you use to set it up.
Otherwise the login will complain that it could not unlock the keychain, and promt for your setup-password.. ;-)
The first login will auto-create the login.keychain anyway, so simply delete it in the Template.

3: Don't leave Finder windows open. They will point to your setup account, and not have access.. ;-)

4: On Lion, clear out ~/Library/Saved Application State
Otherwise the apps you had open under the setup user will open in states not so good (like web sessions etc..)

5: Remember to copy the files into the language of the Login Window language!!!
Pr. default, that is English, but if you selected something else during the OS install, like Danish, you need to copy the files into "User Template/da.lproj" and not "User Template/English.lproj" !!

Set up a customized new user template
Authored by: blackjmac on May 24, '12 01:33:09PM


I created my user template in English and French for all new users on Lion. My root session is in French, my admin session in French too, and all new user accounts are always in English by default. How do I set up the French language for all new user accounts automatically when creating a new account ?
