Kubuntu 18.04 KDE PLasma5 as desktop environment


Is it possible to configure default plasma widgets for new user? So when I create new user on workstation it have preconfigured widgets by default. Or maybe is it possible to install/enable widget for user from CLI.


Take a look at


All widgets settings are stored there. You can create a new user, define what do you want, exit session and copy this file to /etc/skel (for new users) or copy it to ~/.config of existing users.

You can also create a complete theme for your users. You can see detailed instructions here: https://userbase.kde.org/Plasma/Create_a_Look_and_Feel_Package.
