View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade/Settings in /home Issues

May 20th, 2010, 06:26 PM
I have noticed quite a few people posting that have upgraded or clean installed(but left the /home intact) and are now having issues with old settings messing things up such as Thunderbird 3 not doing the new functions, themes acting screwy, and more.

Is there any easy way to dump these old settings and force the install to create new ones?

Take this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9332316#post9332316) for example, I am almost positive that an old setting has messed up how the OP's themes are working, but I prefer not to tell him/her to reinstall with a new/home to fix it. That would not be the best route for fixing one little configuration problem.
