thank you very much but it would not. i know this and use this.

the problem is where to find documentation about what gnome file does 
what, and how to make these skeleton files.

any attempt to create clean user, configure gnome in it, move files to 
skel etc. failed. gnome gets lots of bugs, panel crashes etc. this way.

now i know how to move desktop icons themselves, but not configuration.
no idea what files defines what. gnome is even worse than windows in it.

if you have some description about it - will be very helpful
