You might want to try using my back-up script in the How-to section of this forum.
Set it up to back-up just your data and config files to a different partition for safe keeping.
Make your clean install using the same user name that you used for the backed-up install.
Put the .ShellScripts folder that is in your back-up into your new install /home folder.
Reinstall the bakclean script into the new install. If the partitions are the same you won't have to change the configuration. If they aren't you will need to change them in the script.
You can then restore your data and config files with the restore utility in the script.
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.
Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
