My thanks to all who gave me leads and such on this jolly trek I've been on.
May asked me to post the answer when I got it, so here it is.
For these examples I removed the OpenOffice Spreadsheet, and put the terminal
button first (before the web browser)
RedHat 9 and Enterprise 3 (Gnome 2.2)
Edit the files
In general/%gconf.xml I replaced the word spreadsheet_launcher with
In terminal_launcher/%gconf.xml I changed the 'position' value from 300 to 25
Fedora Core 1 (Gnome 2.4)
Edit the file
and add the file/directory
in general/%gconf.xml I replaced the word spreadsheet_launcher with
For the file terminal_launcher/%gconf.xml well ... I haven't gotten that right
yet. I just know that when I have it wrong I get a nice error when I startup
gnome. Since at the moment, my main users are RedHat 9 and Enterprise 3
users, I'm going to say that it's good enough because I found the file :)
Just note that at least for the Gnome 2.2, the examples they use are not what
you find in RedHat 9. This led me on a wild goose chase (but at least I had a
goose to chase)
Also note that you can do all that I did using gconf, but after working with
the syntax of it, I finolly gave up and did things by hand.
Hope this helps people
