Every key in the DConf database has a default value that is used when user accounts are created. How can I change these default values?
Install the package dconf-tools.
Run dconf-editor and navigate to the key you want to change the default for. Note the Schema name, in this example that is com.canonical.Unity.Launcher:
Now we need to create an override file. Run the following command:
gksu gedit /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/my-defaults.gschema.override
You can use any name you want for the file, it just needs to end in gschema.override
Write your new defaults in this file in standard INI format, using schemas for groups names:
favorites=['nautilus-home.desktop', 'google-chrome.desktop', 'banshee.desktop', 'gnome-terminal.desktop', 'ubuntu-software-center.desktop', 'ubuntuone-installer.desktop', 'gnome-tweak-tool.desktop', 'gpodder.desktop', 'shutter.desktop']
Save the file and close it. Now run the following command from a terminal to apply your changes:
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
gsettings list-recursively | grep launcher
