Sorry if this has already been asked before, but after some net
searching, I'm still slightly stuck on the answer.

I'm build a Debian Gnome desktop for a small local company, and wish to
set a few things up as default in Gnome-2.2.2 for every user, this way I
can deploy the same image on every pc (as they are all the same,
hardware wise), basically set a user default customised theme, edit a
few gconf settings, like mailto to open in evolution etc..

This I can do no problem on a per user basis, but I would like to
somehow set it system wide, so everytime I create a new user, they get
all the defaults that I have set when they log into gnome.



The Gnome Desktop System Administrators Guide is a very helpful tool:

Also in general for G22:


Hope this helps!

Hey, that's really helpful. This got me thinking since I use KDE a lot more than GNOME. I searched on google and read lists in languages other than english (all hail the Google translator :) but I couldn't find an equivalent utility for KDE? Pray, would you happen to know such an administrative resource for KDE?
