View Full Version : [xfce] XFCE desktop parameters as template

October 28th, 2008, 02:25 PM
Hi all,

I'm new to this forum so firstly I would like to thank you for this great forum which helped me a lot lastly !

However I still have a question for which I didn't find the answer yet (but I'm sure it's peace of cake for you guys ;))

I had to setup an ubuntu machine which will only be used from the network (no screen plugged).
I managed to install and configure vnc for simultaneous multi users but it was a bit slow so I decided to turn to a lighter desktop manager.

I successfully installed XFCE and designed the panel and the desktop icons for one user but it was a long process...
I would now like to know if it's possible to export these settings to other users accounts.

I already tried the brutal method : copying the .config folders from the reference account to the other ones but it didn't work at all.

So if you have a suggestion, I would be happy to try something more clean ;)

thank you very much.

Best regards,
