      Hi,

      Can we auto arrange icons on the desktop's JDS where users cannot move the icons on the desktop?

          I don't think there's a gconf key for this, but you could always just set the permissions on each user's ~/.gnome-desktop directory to read-only. They'll still be able to re-arrange the icons, but not add or delete any.

          It's also possible that the [JDS Configuration Manager|http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/coll/1221.1?l=en] would provide you an easier way to do this, but I forget if it specifically allows you to lock down desktop icons.

            Thanks Calum.

            Even trying to make the gnome users for read-only but it still not lockdown the icon desktop.
            Anyway, it is fine as users are disallow from add or delete icons/appl.

            Hope gnome people can figure out this features like windows style where it can lockdown the desktop icons.

                I don't really have any practical experience with JDS Configuration Manager myself, so I can't give you much assistance I'm afraid.

                If the [installation and administration guides|http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/coll/1221.1?l=en] aren't enough help, I'd suggest asking for assistance on the [APOC Mailing List|http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/apoc] (the "JDS Configuration Manager" name changed to "APOC" when it was open sourced.)
