The two directories you care about in this case are


You could e.g. rsync the user plugin dirs from a central one, or put them
in an nfs mount (read only might have issues as plugins try to write .pyc
files or even write data to the plugin dir).

The ~/.config/QGIS/QGIS2.conf is a standard ini style config file so you
should be able to pick through it and awk/sed/bash your way to nirvana :-)
