Modifing Gnome display from command line

I have about 30 Linux server that need to be identically configured. I have a script that sets most of the configuration. However I want to make slight modifications to the Gnome display; basically add a terminal shortcut, and the system monitor to the task bar. is this possible?

Yes it is possible, but I can't tell you how. All I know is that Gnome config is in text files. But there are many places to look at: .gnome2, .gnome2_private, ... Just create a shortcut and look for subsequent changes, to help you locate the place where shortcuts are defined.

I looked into in and I realised that I'm way out of my depth. I think I'll stick to doing it through the GUI.

Thanks for the advice
