SubjectCommon GUI Config for All Users
From

Looking for the best way to give all users a common desktop, which comes from one source (for easy administration).

Found copying my /root/.gnome & .sawfish directories to a user home breaks the user's GUI, implying a symlink wouldn't work. I am told .gnome & .sawfish can be copied to /etc/skel to give common look for new users, but need ongoing single-source control. Besides, I tried copying root's config files to skel & it broke user GUIs.

Security is also a concern, so couldn't symlink into root anyway.

Symlinked root's panel file & folder to non-prived user's, but adding/removing an applet in root does not seem to affect the user's desktop.

Recommendations & resources welcomed, please.
