NAME
gnome-cleanup - cleans GNOME user preferences
SYNOPSIS
gnome-cleanup user
DESCRIPTION
gnome-cleanup erases all GNOME user preferences, returning the user to the default look and feel. This can be used to undo undesired pref- erence settings, or to correct the desktop 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 program when logged into another session, for exam- ple, the Failsafe session. If the user tries to run this program while already logged into GNOME, an error message is displayed.
OPTIONS
None.
OPERANDS
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.
