[ SOLVED ] need to reinstall google chrome

Post by jarp53 »

I install the xfce desktop and now I have some issues ; first I like to fix google chrome is glitch y, so I remove < sudo apt remove --purge > then I downloaded and "debian package installer" said I did not have permission to install , so I install it from the terminal but I get the same chrome I had before ,I mean I did not get it from scratch where you have to sign into google and it continues to glitch ; what can I do ?

sorry, i cant help you with xfce and the glitch you are talking about, but if you want to "reset" apps you need to delete the configuration data that is keep in your home directory otherwise it will just reload whatever you had before. config files are usually under these:

~/.config
~/local
~/.<filename>

try deleting the ~/.config/google-chrome directory and see if you have a clean chrome. if not then there are more config files elsewhere.

hope that helps ^^

yes I was thinking to find the files and delete them, but since I have other issues I think I'm going to re install and switch to xfce right away before I customize the OS, thank you for the help .

Unless you want the added hassle of purging Cinnamon from LMDE, go with normal Mint.

That's easily decided. Linux Mint xfce. There is no LMDE xfce.
Coming to a thread near you: Lots of bragging about my AMD 5950X. Currently delayed due to high demand.
