    XFCE4 - Reseting Defaults


    Hi,
    I'm not exactly sure what I did, but now when I go to log into Xfce 4 it fails from kdm. I can log into my root account in Xfce 4 so I know its not a software issue, its with the configuration.

    How can I reset the default configuration for this user so I can log into the account again? Thanks,

    -Ken

    Look around in the /home/username directory for the hidden xfce directories and rename them, then start xfce4 as the user so that the folders can rebuild themselves. I'm not running xfce4 right now and don't remember the exact name of the folders in question.

    Thanks a lot for your response. I quickly looked for where they would be but I forgot about the hidden files. I quickly googled xfce4 configuration files and found where they were and renamed them accordingly. Thanks,
