Description of problem:

Is there a way to skip the Gnome Getting Started video?  It was cute as a kitten the first time and I appreciate its value for a first time user as it answers many questions I had the first time I looked at the Gnome 3 desktop.  But for scripted installs of of virtual machines for testing other applications it is too much.

Is there a way to script the gnome-initial-setup?   Maybe with gsettings or schema override in the Anaconda Kickstart post script?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

If you are scripting stuff you can just touch ~/.config/gnome-initial-setup-done and both g-i-s and the video will be skipped for that user.

Closing this, bug feel free to re-open if you have a use case that's not fixed by that.

Thank you. With the file name gnome-initial-setup-done I was able to find all kinds of information.
