Copy the GNOME Default Desktop to another User


Create a new user, configure the desktop as you want it to be and then copy all files (including hidden ones) from that user's home to /etc/skel.

Everything inside /etc/skel should be copied to home directories of all new users. The files in /etc/skel can owned by root, the ownerships and permissions will be handled automatically when the new user is created.
