DESCRIPTION

gnome-cleanup erases all GNOME user preferences, returning the user to the default look and feel. This can be used to undo an undesired preference setting, 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.

gnome-cleanup displays all preference files that it will delete before erasing any files, and prompts the user to confirm that they would like to erase these files. Files are deleted 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 example, the Failsafe session. If the user tries to run this program while logged into GNOME, an error message is displayed.

OPTIONS

None.
