ok; will have to investigate later.

that's ok, I expect(ed) some of those with all the new scripts.
I'm surprised there's just one to be honest.

grep bin/* shows build_iso.sh, install_mapnik.sh, install_mapserver.sh,
and main.sh still using it.

we'd have to find and attack the skeleton file, as the ~user/.mozilla/
dir doesn't exist yet when we run the install scripts.
also it might pay to investigate the ubuntu-theme firefox package and
see how it does it, and if it will override whatever we do.

it looks like the ubufox package is putting the homepage in

let's try editing it there.

If you run the install scripts while not logged into the user account
running Xfce, that should happen automatically. (changes to disk get
blasted upon logout as it saves current state) I suggest to try running
the install scripts from a xterm session or maybe install a tiny WM like
fluxbox to run the install scripts from?

no time to peek at the build logs right now, but asap.
