Ubuntu – How to reset the Unity configuration


I've been messing around with Unity and broke something, how do I "start over"?

Best Answer

  • The following command does not work on newer distributions (as the reply is ERROR: the reset option is now deprecated).

    For 12.04 and older

    The simplest way is to hit "open a Terminal" or hit Alt-F2 and run the command:

    unity --reset
