View Full Version : [ubuntu] Gnome Menu User "Template"

I have a few users I need to setup on a system and although there are multiple users I have customised the gnome menu to respect what is required.

However when I create a new account I have to edit the menu again, can I copy the menu structure from User 1 to User 2 for example so I don't have to keep modifying it.
