Sorry if this is covered elsewhere. Could not find it (could be being blind)

If I upgrade fro 9.10 to 10.04 LTS will I lose

1. My Gnome panel settings
2. My compiz fusion settings

and

3. Will EnvyNG still be able to manage m,y Nvidia drivers OK?

I realize there is always a risk with an upgrade but I was just wondering what you all thought the chances were that I may lose these settings.

am running 9.10 64bit, Not sure what other info you may need, or if that info even helps!

I upgraded to alpha then through conventional means and didn't lose settings.

Those settings are stored in files in your /home directory.

As the upgrade will not do anything to /home, so your settings will be fine.

Thank you. That was what I thought. Just wanted to check as I can often overlook the obviious!
