How to script new icons in Gnome (with position, icon size and emblems)
I'm building a kickstart install script to install Red Hat Enterprise 5.
This contains (among other things) a bash script to set up the Gnome desktop environment to be used by our admin staff.
I can easily create new desktop launcher icons by creating the .desktop files in the appropriate user's directory, and set the commands to be run by these icons. But how can I set the position of icons on the screen? I'd also like to change icon size and add emblems to certain icons.
The desktop is for our admin staff to use to troubleshoot the machine, and so it's important to make the things they are likely to need in a hurry stand out.
Can anyone point me at some reference? Everything I've found so far involves running up the GUI and making changes by hand, which really isn't an option as we need an unattended install.
Thanks in advance,
