I need help with Linux Mint 12. I am trying to change the default web page, so that people using guest-session will open a specific web page instead of Linux Mint's corny default site.

Also, please note that when I installed Chromium, the Linux Mint default page comes up there too. There must be a global variable somewhere. It would likely be in the same place that Ubuntu keeps the same variable. Does anyone know where this variable is?

Thanks but that will only work for the user that's currently logged on. I want to change the Default web page. The page that is set as home page by default. – ITman Dec 29 '11 at 22:49
Please don't answer with just a link. Summarize the information directly in your answer, keep the link for reference. – Gilles Dec 30 '11 at 2:47
