Immutable Configuration Options
Locking Down KDE
Immutable options allow system administrator to provide default
settings that can not be changed by the user.
Pre-existing configuration options of the user will be ignored once a
configuration option is made immutable.
Options can be controlled either on a per entry basis, per group of
entries or on a file by file basis.
If a file or group is immutable, all configuration options for that
file or group are immutable, even those options for which the system
administrator has no default provided.
The support in applications for immutable options may vary from
application to application. Although the user will not be able to make
permanent changes to immutable configuration options, the user may still be
presented with an user interface option to make such change.
