[SOLVED] how to get a new set of default files 4 OB?

Post by userx-bw » Wed May 29, 2019 8:09 pm

I was messing about with rc.xml to fix my mouse clicks and such. and I want a new rc.xml file that started with it, So I can start over. I tried the old remove the ./config/openbox dir logout login trick but it did not re-create my openbox dir with all of the files.

so what is the trick that Arcolinux uses to get a new set of files?
If there is any. I didn't want to try the remove user and recreate my user to see what happens if I do that trick.

I figured it out, Looking at .bashrc

bupskel

then get the files out of that.

First make backup of all your changes.
Then you can do a skel.

or

go to /etc/skel and compare your files with ours.

/etc/skel in a sense is your backup.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
