       gnome-cleanup - cleans GNOME user preferences

       gnome-cleanup user

       gnome-cleanup  erases  all  GNOME user preferences, returning the user to the default look
       and feel.  This can be used to undo undesired preference settings, or to correct the desk-
       top  if	the  preferences  become  corrupt.   The GNOME preference files are automatically
       recreated the next time the user logs into a  GNOME  session.   By  default  this  program
       erases  the  configuration  files  for the user running the command.  However, a different
       user can be specified on the command line.  Of course, configuration files are only erased
       if  the	user  running  gnome-cleanup has appropriate file permissions to erase the user's
       configuration files.

       gnome-cleanup will display a listing of all preference files that  it  will  erase  before
       erasing	any  files,  and  prompts the user to confirm that they would like to erase these
       files.  Files are erase only after receiving a positive confirmation from the user.

       gnome-cleanup cannot be run while logged into a GNOME session.  Users should run this pro-
       gram  when  logged  into  another  session, for example, the Failsafe session. If the user
       tries to run this program while already logged into GNOME, an error message is displayed.


       The following operands are supported:

       user	       Specify the user whose configuration files will be erased.  The files will
		       only  be  erased if the user running gnome-cleanup has file permissions to
		       erase the user's configuration files.  This is useful, for example, if you
		       want  to  run the script as the root user to erase the configuration files
		       for a specific user.  If user is not specified, the user is  the  same  as
		       the user who runs the gnome-cleanup command.

       Example 1: Erase GNOME user preferences

       example% gnome-cleanup

       After  displaying a list of preference files that will be erase, the following question is

       Do you wish to remove these files (Y/N)

       The files are erase only if the user provides a positive response.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	Application exited successfully

       >0	Application exited with failure

       The following files are used by this application:
