Ubuntu – how to change default launcher icons in unity for a new user


I have customised my Unity launcher's icon list with custom launchers . Now I want the same customised launcher to appear when i create a new user. Currently the default ubuntu launcher appears when I create a new user.
How do I do that?

Ok, after googling around I found the answer. It's quite simple. The answer is a combination of the two answers above plus a few more. Open a Terminal and type the following command:

sudo cp -rf .config/ .gconf/ .gconfd/ .gnome2/ /etc/skel/

That's it. Now all the changes will appear for the new user. This worked for me. I tested the changes by creating a new user.

Note that this will not change the launchers for already existing users, just for newly created users.
