[Whish List] save user configuration

kubuntu-meta (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I would like to request a feature that is from Knoppix. I really like kubuntu live cd but I don't like loosing all my settings every time I reboot the computer.

here's an extract from the knoppix web site on what the feature does.

myconfig=scan or floppyconfig or floppyconf (in recent versions)
 Run knoppix.sh from a floppy. The "floppyconfig" option allows you to reconfigure the system after autoconfig, or install your own config files, by mounting a floppy disk and running a bourne shell script called knoppix.sh from the root directory on this floppy. There is a GUI to create such a configuration floppy disk calles "saveconfig" (also located in the KDE menu under "KNOPPIX", but experts also know how to do this by creating their own shellscripts. The configuration with network and graphics setup are stored in configs.tbz. A file called knoppix.sh, if located in the toplevel KNOPPIX directory on CD, will also be executed at startup. This makes it easier to create customized versions without having to change anything on the compressed filesystem KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX.

The dapper live CD has a persistance option, which allows you to use eg
a usbdisk to save settings.
