I recently installed gnome 41. Everything was fine until I installed so-called “Backslide”. I pointed backslide at a directory containing approximately 4000 png format wallpapers and now the “Backslide” configuration interface no longer functions. The “gnome-tweak-tool” is also trashed. I’ve tried removing all gnome config files (find . -name gnome 2>/dev/null), but removing the files does not remove the old config data. I also tried
dconf reset -f /org/gnome/
But the old config data returns. Question: If the config data is not stored in my home directory, where is it installed and how can I remove it or restore Gnome to original condition? Thanks for your assistance.
Hello, you may want to try to delete the backslide extension folder from
Thanks for the reply. You’ll forgive me, but I forgot to mention specifically that I removed gnome-shell/extensions directory from both the .local directory and the /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions (with the extensions tool) and unfortunately the configuration data persists. Obviously the configuration data is stored somewhere else. As I stated above, I remove ALL gnome configuration data from my /home filesystem - including .local.
Hmm, you could also try to delete the entire dconf database (the default location is usually
~/.config/dconf/user) or search your hard drive for anything else titled “backslide”.
I’ve repaired the problem, which, as it turns out, was related to Wayland environment variables I set for another window manager. In any case, thanks for the replies.
