I have done this before for Demi Lovato Linux

look here are some files labeled root, It contains the configs and everything for reference.

for this you edit this file /var/lib/gconf/debian.defaults

look for this line

<entry name="icon_theme" mtime="1323406457" type="string">

Wow that's Ubuntu, it looks like windows. also a nether trick is copying the configs from the home folder to /etc/skel/ for example /home/$USER/.gconf to /etc/skel/.gconf – zeitue Mar 12 '12 at 16:59
