[SOLVED] How manually reset user's cinnamon settings?

I've somehow goofed up my account's Cinnamon settings. (I'm using Linux Mint 13, but it's an upgrade from Mint 12, and I retained the content of my ~ directory).

Is there some set of files I can blow away, so that the next time I log into my account, I have a default Cinnamon configuration?

find/grep have been less useful than I hoped.

Create a new user, log in to that user, copy your data files from the old user then delete it.

Could you be more specific?

I have LOTS of settings for programs in my home folder that I'm not willing to lose. I made a guest account and cinnamon works fine for it, but my main account gives a fatal error and logs out.

Does anyone know where the settings for cinnamon are in home?

Try the command

Code: Select all

gsettings reset-recursively org.cinnamon
after you've logged in.

That's it! Thanks.

Kind of makes me miss dot files, though.
