Years ago, we had a sysadmin who set up the default install so that all users start out with trash, their home folder, and some application launchers on their desktop. I'm currently in the process of building out some new machines for users that need a slight update. I would like to find out what folder he used (it's not /etc/skel or anything in the xdg/* directory) to set this default, then modify it.
Modifying the directory is easy enough, how would I go about finding where this directory is?
Added info: these users will be logging in as local users authenticated against LDAP, we are using XFCE4 on Xubuntu.
