This question is not answered

Evening all..

I have changed my desktop - moved task bar to bottom, rremoved some icons, etc etc,  and want to restore the desktop back to original install.

Read about:

  dconf eset -f /org/compiz/

setsid unity

unity --reset

Don't want to mess with anything except the desktop..

  • It appears that answer was for older versions of Ubuntu.  Another post suggests the unity tweak tool for newer versions of Ubuntu:

    sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

    unity-tweak-tool --reset-unity


  • It seems this works. I've giving it a try, if it doesn't I'll try unity-tweak-tool --reset-unity

    mv ~/.confif/dconf/user ~/.config/dconf/user.old
