Description

Hi,

could the qgis preferences file pre-seed /user/home/grassdata as the one to use for the grass GIS database? It makes using the grass plug work out of the box a bit better for new users who'd otherwise have to hunt around for the directory.

thanks, Hamish

Perhaps cat << EOF >> /home/user/.config/QuantumGIS/QGIS.conf

[GRASS] gisbase= lastGisdbase=/home/user/grassdata region\on=true

EOF

or even better, put a preconfigured QGIS.conf file into /etc/skel/.config/QuantumGIS/ ??

(Better formatted)

Perhaps:
cat << EOF >> /home/user/.config/QuantumGIS/QGIS.conf

[GRASS]

gisbase=
lastGisdbase=/home/user/grassdata
region\on=true

EOF

or even better, put a preconfigured QGIS.conf file into /etc/skel/.config/QuantumGIS/ ??

Hi,

hopefully fixed in svn by Alex.

@Micha: use three curly brackets { { { together to quote code blocks in trac } } } (but no spaces between them :)
