[Solved] Reset to default panels

Post by Aily »

Hi,

I have some fancy panels with drop menu that I got from either installing something or following a guide. Don't remember which. Thing is, it' doesn't feel that fancy anymore, since it gives me more trouble than not.

Now I'm looking for a way to reset my panels to the default panels in MATE.

I've tried to use

Code: Select all

mate-panel --reset
without luck. It only did a reset on the panel settings I have.

Thank you.

Depends on what exactly you installed. You may be able to just right click the panel you want to remove and select "Delete This Panel" or similar.

You can also do a full reset to defaults by running this in a terminal window:

Code: Select all

dconf reset -f /org/mate/panel/ 
The GUI reset function in the right-click menu doesn't work correctly.
