Restoring User Defaults

Using the command line

  1. Press alt-f2 and type kdesu konsole , enter root password
  2. Type cp -R /etc/skel/ /home/username (where username is the name of your user)
  3. Log out and log in again.


Comments

"cp" "-R" are not recognized commands in konsole in Sabayon, or so konsole tells me

Please post comments on the talk page or discussion page for this page

cp -R works for me and others, please provide more information on the discussion page or forum.

Using Konqueror (GUI)

  1. Press alt-f2 and type kdesu konqueror, enter root password
  2. In the address / location bar type /etc/skel
  3. From the View Menu Select Show all Hidden Files (Ctrl-Shift-H)
  4. Select all the files in this directory (Ctrl-A) and then copy (Edit-Copy or Ctrl-C)
  5. In the address / location bar type /home/username (where username is the name of your user)
  6. Paste the copied files (Edit-Paste or Ctrl-V), if it wants to overwrite select Yes or No depending on if you want the program settings to be restored to default (kde settings are in .kde, beryl settings are in .beryl etc)
  7. Log out and log in again.
