mate is a Puppet module that installs and manages MATE.
This module is a component of the System Integrity Management Platform a compliance-management framework built on Puppet.
If you find any issues, they may be submitted to our bug tracker.
This module is optimally designed for use within a larger SIMP ecosystem, but it can be used independently:
- When included within the SIMP ecosystem, security compliance settings will be managed from the Puppet server.
- If used independently, all SIMP-managed security subsystems are disabled by default and must be explicitly opted into by administrators. See simp_options for more detail.
To use the module with default settings, just include the class:
You can disable configuration of mate by setting
mate::configure to false.
The module will then only install MATE.
This module makes heavy use of data. The
dconf settings are all data-driven,
and the defaults can be seen in the
You can use the knockout prefix of
-- in front of a key to remove it from the
Hash, like this:
mate::dconf_hash: simp_mate: --org/mate/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys: org/mate/desktop/media-handling: --automount-open:
Or you can simply set it to the desired value.
Dconf settings are locked by default so that users can't change them.
This can be disabled on a per setting basis, like in this entry for wallpaper
mate::dconf_hash: simp_mate: org/mate/desktop/background: picture-uri: value: file:///usr/local/corp/puppies.jpg lock: false
