View Full Version : [ubuntu] change default settings for new users

November 20th, 2008, 02:41 AM
So, I have created a ubuntu ltsp environment.
The deal is I want to remove and add certain application for all users.
I dont want to have to create a user then spend an hour setting up there applications.

I read about /etc/skel but it only adds files not applications?

Is there a way to create a default user then make all new users start at that point?

Does that make sense?
