Hmm, I never tested this, but when yoiu create a new user, all files from
/etc/skel should be transferred to the new user's /home. Of course all fils
must be owned by the user. At first login there are indeed some files created in
/tmp. Reboot is clearing this stuff, but a script should do it as well.
Please do not just simply copy the files to of the "master"-user to /etc/skel,
I suggest to use rsync for that. With rsync you are also able to transfer
You can also try another way: Create a default user and configure it to yoiur
needs. Then tar the /home of this user and after creating the new users you
can untar the files in his /home and change owner by a script. This way you
have also the advantage, to create very personal profiles.
