    Default reset gnome desktop

    I'm wondering how to reset the gnome desktop.

    i.e. the task bar and everything is molested, etc. etc.

    I've seen some posts with a shell command for this, however would you think
    its resettable to default via the gui in gnome?

    I can say that the task bar panel was removed and prior to that, the buttons inside of it were re arranged in a bad way.

    As for reset I mean, shimbam! Everythings' back to default.

    To reset everything to default, remove those folders with this command :

    Code:
    rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
