Half of it was educated guess work.. playing around with different settings until I got things to work properly. I tried to get it right, but I really have no way to properly test it.
And you seriously prefer that over sudo or configuring it properly? Am I missing something?
The ability to set 'group policy' is a killer feature for managed desktops
In the corporate environments where I work security and functionality are not at all tied to the desktop, which is just a simple display and keyboard so you can login to the applications. On the servers, sudo is hooked up with LDAP to provide specific (groups of) users with specific ways to gain some specific extra privileges and administrators with a way to audit everything.
Simple and effective, because it's standard. Not 100% secure and user friendly, but if something goes wrong (and we can predict this confidently and accurately), we know what went wrong and we can fix it within the SLA.
