I'm trying to set up xfce as the default desktop environment for the 
student computer lab at the mathematics department at our university.
We want to change the default setup a little, but would like to avoid 
copying alot of files into thew newly created users home directories, but 
would rather that default centrally stored config files be used.

So I edited the $share/xfwm4/defaults file to includes lines like:


among other changes. However, the selected themes are not used when a user 
with an empty home directory logs on the computer. Is this the expected 
behaviour? I also tried a ktrace/kdump on xfwm4 and in looks like the 
file $share/themes/studmath/xfce/keythemerc is stat()-ed and open()-ed.

Also; I am able to create a default panel contents.xml-file and menu.xml 
file, however, how do I set the default backdrop image?
