Directory Assistant 2.1
An application for managing an LDAP address book
Unpack the tarball, cd directoryassistant-1.4/, edit the Makefile (you might want to change the installation location, the prefix line in the Makefile) and run make. (note: if it complains about not having the gtk module installed, and you are sure you have it, make sure you run the ./install.py script under X)
Configuration is done by config file. Since novice users anyway don't know how to configure LDAP access, I decided to remove that from the GUI. The config file is however very simple. An example is shown below:
[My Ldap Server]
ldapurl = ldap://your.ldap.server.com/
bind_dn = cn=someaccount,o=someorg
bind_password = yourpassword
base_dn = ou=department,ou=People,o=someorg
startup_search = myfamilyname
add_dn = ou=myunit,ou=department,ou=People,o=someorg
The config should be stored in /etc/directoryassistant or $HOME/.directoryassistant
