Create a default user and configure it to your needs. Then copy everything of
your settings to /etc/skel. When a new user is created, everything from
/etc/skel will be transferred to the new user profile.
If you have to install this on different machines, you mighjt want to have a
tarball available. I would do it so:
- create a tarball from /etc/skel
- write a shell script, which does
a) unpack the tarball to /etc/skel
b) then creates a new user (i.e. starting adduser)
Doing so, it is easy to have a default profile available.
Another way might be, to write a script, which logs on every machine, changes
/etc/skel, creates user, unlogs. Doing so, you can easily change thopusands of
default profiles in this way, even afterwards (in that case, do not change
/etc/skel but /home/youruser/)
Hope this helps
