I reinstalled my Debian 11 and try configure it but everything goes wrong.

enter image description here

I need to reset it as fresh new.
What i tried :- dconf-cli command replace user .config with root .config but things didn't effect that much.

  • well after reboot not everything but most of the thing become stable. maybe because of root user .config folder file.

  • Create a new user account, check if it's still an issue. No idea where LXQT stores its config files, so I can't say which ones to move away. Jun 23 at 13:56

Credits:- Artem S. Tashkinov comment that solve my problem.

Lxqt stores it config files in /home/"user name without double quote and white space"/.config/ and the configuration that user made to desktop or task manager or panel are save in /home/"user name"/.config/lxqt according to my knowledge.

So, The steps i did to reset my configuration with commands are:-

  • Start terminal and become root user.
    • sudo su

  • delete a regular user that configuration files you want to reset.
    • deluser "user name"

  • add new user
    • adduser "user name"

  • give sudo privilege to new user.
    • sudo usermod -a -G sudo "user name"

  • restart computer to work all changes perfectly.
    • sudo reboot

That's all.
