    Can't get back default settings for gnome-session-fallback under Ubuntu 12.04.

    So I was playing around with the launcher in Ubuntu 12.04 using gnome-session-fallback and accidentally deleted a few things. I wanted to return the panel to the original state. After Googling, i read that I could go to ~/.config/gnome-session/saved-session/ and delete everything in there to accomplish this. Unfortunately there is nothing in the directory. Removing and re-installing gnome-session-fallback doesn't return it to the default, either. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    When you say "original state" do you mean the default that you get after installing gnome-panel and gnome-session-fallback, or do you want to get back to how you had configured it yourself?

    If you want the default as after installation I think you can remove (or perhaps just rename) the hidden ~/.gconf folder as well as the ~/.config/dconf folder. If you want to get back to the way you had previously changed it to yourself, I suspect that you will need to reconfigure it, unless you had made a backup of your /home.

    Yes, I mean the original state it was in when I installed gnome-session-fallback. I didn't install gnome-panel but I believe those are the same thing, right?

    I will try doing those two things you specified.
