Shell scripts to migrate user settings and profiles from Windows to Linux
Do any of you IT wizards who deal with both Windows and Linux have any shell scripts handy to migrate user profiles and settings from Windows to Linux?
Mostly this would cover cross-platform apps. I am thinking this is basically copy the Windows setting directory to the equivalent "hidden" directory in the user's /home.
My Save Stuff->?
Thanks again. :)
As for Firefox or Chrome, you can use their sync feature to copy preferences to another machines
Some Windows 'shell' environment variables that may help:
But that should get you started.
My output for comparison:
I was going to start a new thread but might as well use this thread.
I am looking for a method to migrate MRU lists from MS Office apps to LibreOffice apps. Ideally, something that is automated rather than manual.
Looks like MS Office apps store that information in the registry and LO apps store that information in ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/registrymodifications.xcu.
Any ideas to move the data from one to the other?
Registry data, I believe it binary in nature but it can be exported to .txt
Some locations seem to be recorded here...
Other than exporting those to a .txt file and running a grep over them to get them into registrymodifications.xcu in the proper format, I don't know of any 'automated' way to accomplish that.
Sorry, wish I had more.
Thanks for the link. :)
Next to find a good linux based Windows shortcut (lnk) parser. For example, system MRU lists are Windows lnk shortcuts.
Edit: Looks like the strings command will do the trick:
Now to figure out which lnk files are worth migrating to a Linux system and how to insert the target information into recently-used.xbel.
