Guys I love to customize my Kubuntu Desktop and on my home computer I did something with Homerun and a custom Desktop Theme but whenever I create a new User account that simple KDE desktop comes back so how can I apply my customizations to all accounts without starting from scratch on every account.

Kubuntu defaults / kde4rc

The default configuration profile path is read from the /etc/kde4rc. The information is used when the new user default configuration files are made.

The Kubuntu is using:

[Directories-default]
 prefixes=/usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/

The /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/share/config/default_configuration_filerc is installed to the ~/.kde/share/config/default_configuration_filerc when the KDE is started at the first time - When there is no existing ~/.kde/share/config/default_configuration_filerc file.

You could edit your desktop and then copy your ~/.kde/share/config/configuration_filerc to the /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/share/config/default_configuration_filerc. The new user will then has your settings as start default.
