View Full Version : [ubuntu] Which ./config files affect install and/or video

I did a clean install of Karmic for a 2nd time. The /home was the only file backed up (using Deja Dup). The Trash folder was excluded from the backup.

The install (2nd time in 40 days), was made with a Desktop CD. The install reported no errors and ran perfectly well until I "restored" the /home.

On reboot after restore, the GUI is crazy. Alt-F2 will not open a "terminal". The upper panel cuts off all applications. Using Places to open Nautilus opens Rhythmbox instead.

Below is a list off all my /home (less the obvious, Videos, Public, Documents and any folder I created)

Of these (sorry for a long list) HOW MANY relate to controlling Gnome/Nautilus/Desktop? Can they be deleted without harming the OS? Will they recreate themselves as necessary on re-boot?
