Ubuntu: How can I reset all Rhythmbox preferences and library information?



Question:

Background: I cannot figure out how to make Rhythmbox scan ONLY the folder with my music in it. I want to delete all of its settings and start over.

What do I have to do to make Rhythmbox think it's never been run before?


Solution:1

Remove these folders:

  • ~/.local/share/rhythmbox
  • ~/.cache/rhythmbox
  • ~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox.

You can use your file browser to do this or run this command from the terminal:

rm ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/ ~/.cache/rhythmbox/ ~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox/ -r  


Solution:2

In recent versions I had to do this to reset gsetting keys (there was no ~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox)

gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.display-page-tree  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.library  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.player  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.plugins  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.plugins.iradio  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.plugins.lyrics  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.plugins.magnatune  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.plugins.replaygain  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.plugins.visualizer  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.podcast  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.podcast  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.rhythmdb  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.sharing  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.rhythmbox.sources  


Solution:3

All your preferences are stored in ~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox/ file.

You need to delete this directory, in Nautilus, press Ctrl+H to show hidden files, then delete it.

Warning: Backup this directory before deleting it.
