I want to take default settings for Inkcape in my Ubuntu 14.04 but I can't change by default setting.
I already remove Inkscape, and re-install, but the configurations keep the same.
How can I change by default all setting in Inkscape?
To remove inkscape and all its settings do:
sudo apt-get remove --purge inkscape
If this dosn't work look in your home folder, show hidden files, look for ~/.config/inkscape that folder should contain your users settings so you can transfer and/or delete those settings.
rm -rf ~/.config/inkscape
sudo apt-get remove --purge inkscape -y
sudo apt-get install inkscape -y
The Templates that Inkscape(Debian&co/Linux) use are bound to your locale-setting and are stored at: /usr/share/inkscape/templates/ for system wide configuration.
E.g. for me, the template default.de.svg has to be overwritten, as root, as i need it.
Update for readers using Inkscape 1.x.
First open preferences with Ctrl+Shift+P.
Now you can reset the user preferences here:
