Hi. When I used xfce I configured a user template whit a panel customized. After I copy all in the /etc/skel, and all users new have the same panel. After I create the file kioskrc for avoid these users  change the configuration  of the panel.  This ok,  all users have the same panel and they can not  change the panel only the user ws001. The panel is in the part lowest of the screen.

Now I use xfce 4.4.2. I do the same. My problem is that when I create the file kioskrc, the panel of the users disappear, only appear the same icon that appear when anyone install xfce for fisrt time and in the same place. The panel customized is lost, only the user ws001 have the panel customized. If I delete kioskrc and reboot, all users have the same panel but they can change it. This is my problem. I want the users have the same panel but that  they can not change it. In xfce kioskrc is ok, but in xfce 4.4.2  kioskrc don´t work.

Help me please.  If  there are  other  way  for that tell me please.

Isn't that how it's supposed to work? What do you really want to do?
