I recently upgraded to 38 from 37 and got some issues with Gnome. Some extensions and themes might’ve been the culprit. I tried removing/disabling them and in the process I kind of broke gnome somewhere. I have more issues now, and it warrants a reinstall, but I got confused about the process.
I tried a sudo dnf group remove gnome-desktop but it appears it will remove just 39 packages of 45MB and not the DE itself.
My logic was to remove gnome > go into CLI only >sudo dnf group install gnome-desktop again, but I don’t know all the steps.
Is somebody able to provide me with some instructions in regards to reinstall Gnome in its entirety please? fresh install of distro is not an option sadly.
did just that now, added a new sudo user and logged. gnome is indeed responsive as this one. as to the files from .config and .local, I’ve seen only the dconf file in .config increase in size as per configurations. The GTK folders are kind of the same.
I don’t really know if it would be wise to simply copy the new user’s dconf over the new ones.
