[SOLVED] Stay Rolling Issue

Post by j4media » Fri Feb 15, 2019 6:55 pm

Hi All,

Have to say I'm loving ArcoLinux Openbox...great job and keep it up!

Quick question, I followed the tutorial on how to stay rolling, but once I got through the process and successfully rolled to 19.2 all of my customizations and Conky's were reset :?

Is there a way to get my customizations back, or is there something I should backup before rolling on?

Thanks in advance for your help.

John

When you type

Code: Select all

skel
in the terminal you are overwriting the files in your home directory.

Check the meaning of skel in your terminal when you type

Code: Select all

alias
in there.

You need to backup any of the settings you have changed.

Copy/paste .config folder for example. Later you can do a meld between .config and .config(copy) and see the differences and reverse them in meld.

Many video's about meld and skel - follow a few of them.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
