Does restoring my home folder, restore network and printer settings on elementary os?

1 Answer 1


It shouldn't. Those are handled by the system and will be in system config files /etc/NetworkManager is the directory where network settings are stored. As for printer settings - the man pages says "The printers.conf file defines the local printers that are available. It is normally located in the /etc/cups directory and is generated automatically by the cupsd(8) program when printers are added or deleted."
