[SOLVED] How to change Default Desktop in Ubuntu

Forums: 

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
