Centos shared Desktop Items

Posted on 2012-09-12

This might be a really dumb question but I'm new to Linux and am not sure how to do this or even ask the correct question.

So here it goes... I have a Centos 6 system that is running gnome for desktop interaction with users. I have 6 users that remote NX into the system and I would like to setup a default application that is loaded on the system to be placed on the desktop so that I don't need to set up the application for each user.

I'm looking for the location to set up a shared setting for all users or a group of users on Linux much like Microsofts Public desktop setting. So as I update the program each user will see the new version on the desktop as they log on and I don't need to set it up for each user.

What is the best way for me to set this up?

    Create an account, for this example, we'll call it "test"

    In the "test/Desktop" directory place your applications.

    Then bind that directory to the other directories:

      mount --bind /path/to/test/Desktop /path/to/someone_else/Desktop
