Update multiple users to pixel

I have a Pi 3 running nicely on pixel after a normal update.

However there are multiple users on the pi and only one user has been updated.

Is there a standard process for replicating the desktop across multiple users ?

This seems to do the job for me..

Up to date user is pi, user to update is <user>

Code: Select all

sudo cp /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/desktop.conf /home/<user>/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/desktop.conf
To get the new backdrops browse to /user/share/pixel-wallpaper.

The new directory sticks, so you only need to do it once.

I did this a little different because I no longer have a user named "pi" on my pi.

I renamed /home/{user}/.config/lxsessions/LXDE-pi/desktop.conf to desktop.conf.bak

This immediately applied changes from some system folder.

For good measure, copied

Code: Select all

/etc/sdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/desktop.conf
to

Code: Select all

/home/{user}/.config/lxsessions/LXDE-pi
I have no idea whether this is the right way to do things, but it seems to be working for me.
