    Darktable crashing, how can i reset it?

    I have the current version of ArtistX installed on my PC (AMD64, 6 core, 16GB RAM). I want to reset Darktable, reset any settings I changed that might be causing it to crash immediately upon trying to import an image. It was working great. I tried uninstalling Darktable then reinstalling, but still it retains settings and prior lists of folders of imaged edited. I looked in my home folder for .darktable hoping there would be such a configuration folder storing settings but there is no such folder/file of retained settings. Where the frack does Darktable store user settings, so I can delete that file wherever it is?

    Right now Darktable is unusable, I wish someone could help me solve this riddle of getting it back to the way it was, working.

    You can use purge remove package context that method is the best effective to delete preference settings of come package on default package path,

    apt-get --purge remove <package>
    apt-get clean

    the later will clean the /var

    To dissipate if the problem is on package or some launch fault on graphic render you can try also run darktable with
    LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 darktable ;

    I need use the above command for some programs like blender because I have a precarious graphic performance with my unmaintained ATI Graphic card.
    (This is a method to view if your problem is a result of malconfigure of program, or your problem is the graphic card performance with image renderize).
    Any problem comment to us.
