On this page:
- Administration: self-explanatory.
- Options: restore default configurations for selected user.
- Copy/Sync: copies or symlinks one user’s folder to another’s. If you are using a browser other than one by Mozilla, you will need to copy by hand the hidden folder in your Home (e.g., .opera)
- Free Up Space: Offers several easy actions to check and increase hard drive space.
- Add/Remove Groups: self-explanatory.
- Group Membership: allows root to change a given user’s access to services and applications.
Options tab: Restore Defaults: Xfce defaults
When the user selects to restore the original Xfce settings for MX Linux, the contents of two "skeleton files" are copied to the user's Home:
- /etc/skel/.config/, to ~/.config
- /etc/skel/.gtk-2.0/ to ~/.gtk-2.0/
Other than that, no files are replaced. If at some later point the user changes his/her mind, the files that were replaced can be found in the user's Home directory in the hidden directory ~/.restore. The user would simply need to copy those archived directories, paste them back in Home, and accept to overwrite.
