How to Reset Nautilus to the Default Settings via CommandLine

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to revert the Nautilus file manager to the default configuration / settings via command line interface.

All you have to do is to delete the ~/.config/nautilus and ~/.config/nautilus_old files.

In this article I will rename them so that it can be restored if something goes wrong:

$ mv ~/.config/nautilus ~/.config/nautilus_old
$ mv ~/.gconf/apps/nautilus ~/.gconf/apps/nautilus_old

Reboot. If you are happy with the default configurations, delete the configuration files we have just renamed:

$ rm -r ~/.config/nautilus_old
$ rm -r ~/.gconf/apps/nautilus_old
