I am having great difficulty finding an
easy way to change defaults.

Especially for GUI programs which either
don't have an obvious global configuration
or if they do it is undocumented.

KDE: Someone mentioned the global
configuration a while back, but I can't
find the post.
What I need to do is set up locale
(to UK), screensaver and the proxy
& plugin settings for konqurer centrally.

Openoffice.org: How do I get this to
default to British, rather than US
settings. Even deleting the US dictionaries
and ammending dictionary.lst dosn't
do the trick.

Gimp: insists on defaulting to US letter
paper.

Mozilla: I can't get /etc/mozilla/prefs.js
to do anything useful at all. Need to
be able to set the proxy, homepage and
being able to configure IMAP here would
be very useful.

(Why does Mozilla insist on making
difficult what is easy with lynx and
mutt...)
