    5. The icons in the panel
    6. The digital clock settings and Times format

    That's for KDE4.

    What you can do, before entering any personal data ( emailaddresses ) and before entering the new user accounts, is to copy config files to /etc/skel/`folder where you find them in your homedir`. AFAIK /etc/skel is copied when creating the new user's homedir.

    Nothing mentions that it is for KDE4 anywhere, but I prefer your solution in any case. Simpler than using kiosktool.

    It does, but you have to look into the package. It requires none of the plasma5 packages, but does require libkde4-devel . Also, it writes config data in ~/.kde4, instead of ~/.config.

    And where to find the documentation ?

    It is exactly my question.
    What to copy and from where.

    For kate it was easy for me by looking what files are modified when kate settings are changed.
    But for the rest ???

    I suppose it is stupid to copy all the folder ".config" in "/etc/skel" from the initial user.

    Any help is welcome.

    Well, stupid ... You could do that, but ~/.config also contains the akonadi resources, the email* files. Remove those, create a test user and see what happens.

    At the moment I have no akonadi folder in the initial user home folder ( It is a fresh install ).
    I have create 3 users.
    Seems working.

    .config files I have copied in /etc/skel
    http://paste.opensuse.org/26641169


    .local files I have copied in /etc/skel
    http://paste.opensuse.org/57560621

    To find which files are useful, I have open all '.config' files in kate and see what files are modified when an application is modified by setup action.
    Hope it is sufficient.

    Any comment is welcome.

    Thank you every body for helping.
