[SOLVED] How to change Default Desktop in Ubuntu

Link to this post 31 May 09

Hello everyone. I am trying to figure out how to make changes to the Desktop persistent across new user accounts. A few years ago I was using PCLinuxOS and all you have to do was copy the relevant config files to the /etc/skel directory.

This doesn't work in Ubuntu 9.04 (Actually it made it so that I was unable to create any new user accounts ..... X(

Was hoping someone might have the answer to this one!

Thanks,
Chris

Just in case anyone runs across this thread and has the same question, you can setup a universal default configuration in Ubuntu 9.04 by copying the setting config files to the /etc/skel directory.

My main install is a little borked I guess and will not work, but I just finished an Ubuntu remaster and all settings worked from within that install.

Cheers,
Chris
