How to reset your desktop layout to default
SuperX has a modular desktop interface (The KDE Plasma 5 desktop) that is very customisation with widgets and every user can customise the interface too his her choice.
However at times, we find that new users while experimenting with the new OS, manages to break the desktop in a manner that may not be easy for a new user to fix.
To address this issue, here we put forward some simple steps that can be used to reset the desktop to its original layout.
- 1 Open the Terminal
- 2 Resetting the Desktop layout
- 3 Restarting the system
Open the Terminal
Click on the SuperX Menu
Open the Terminal by going to System category in the SuperX Menu as shown below:
Resetting the Desktop layout
Type in (or copy paste) the following and press enter:
cp -f /etc/skel/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc
As shown in the picture below, type the above command or copy-paste it into the terminal and then press enter. This command will reset the desktop configuration.
No other files will be touched apart from the desktop configuration file, so no need to worry about loosing any data.
Restarting the system
Once the above is done, restart your system to see the changes.
