gconf-editor provides you a little geeky way to tweak Ubuntu configurations. It reads the XML configurations in directory ~/.gconf and /usr/share/gconf, and presents these configurations in a human-readable way. But if you think gconf-editor is not geeky enough, you can always directly modify the files in those directories.

- Open up dconf-editor (You may want to use apt-get to install it if not found)
- Go to desktop => unity => launcher
- The "favorites" key contains a list of applications shown in the launcher initially
- If you wonder where are these "xxx.desktop" files, go to /usr/share/applications
