Hi again. I did that, in the begining this don't work, but I change permissions to directory /etc/xdg/xfce4/panel to 755 and then this work. My problem now is that the optios Exit and Shutdown are present when I do click right in the panel. The Shutdown I can avoid in kioskrc but the Exit don't. I prefer this options don't appear.

> Hi. When I used xfce 184.108.40.206 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 220.127.116.11 kioskrc is ok, but in xfce 4.4.2 kioskrc don´t work.

You can just copy the template to the default panel configuration
(e.g. /etc/xdg/xfce4/panel/), instead of /etc/skel.
In Xfce 4.4.2 the kiosk mode uses the default panel configuration,
because otherwise the user could still manually alter the panel
