Instead of accessing each users’s home directory, I strongly recommend
adding a new “skeleton”: a set of files that are automatically added to
new home directories when a new user account shows up.

To do that, the lxqt service can extend ‘account-service-type’ with new
skeletons.  I can’t find an example of that but let us know if it’s
harder than it seems!
