View Full Version : [SOLVED] Fresh install keeping home folder resetting any appearance setting

January 14th, 2011, 11:59 PM
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and I want to move to 10.10. The upgrade path would be very long so I want to do a fresh install. I have twisted a little bit my Gnome appearance (theme, icons in menu bar, etc.). I would like to install it, keeping all of my files in my home folder but using fresh visual settings from Maverick. What should I do?

PS: I have the home folder in a separate partition.

Thanks in advance.
