Default configuration xfce-perchannel-xml

I'm running an Open OnDemand remote desktop service for our cluster at Montana State University. We have a number of classes that will be using the service. I logged into my own account and configured a number of default settings I want to enable whenever a new user logs in. I copied my ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/*.xml to /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/ thinking this is where the defaults should exist. As far as I can tell this folder is ever accessed when a new user logs in, so my settings are never applied to new logins.

Where can I stage my default configuration? Or do I need to do it the old fashioned way and copy the default config xml files on first login to ~/.config/xfce4?

Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Default configuration xfce-perchannel-xml

If it’s for newly created accounts, /etc/xdg should be used, however some distros override this. For example, xubuntu uses /etc/xdg-xubuntu.

Otherwise, you can always also place the files in /etc/.skel as the contents of that directory will be copied over on new account creations.
