I tried thinking of that, but it made my head hurt. I don't know of a
config file in xfce that says what icons are on the desktop. Somewhere,
there's something for the Home, Trash, Filesystem and Removable drives
that you can select in a settings checkbox, but I suspect that's not a
plain text config file that can be replaced with an edited version.
Put the files in /etc/skel? That would be easy, but it would only work for
new users. Does d-i create the user before or after desktop-base is installed?
