Ubuntu: Re-setting Ubuntu, checking files


Is there any way to check files in Ubuntu and reset config if there is something wrong? Some application that will go through the files and detects if they are in a good standing.


To check the integrity of files that came from deb packages, you can make use of the /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.md5sums files.

Verifying Unity files:

cd /  md5sum -c /var/lib/dpkg/info/unity*.md5sums  

If you get an error just run sudo apt-get --reinstall install <corrupted-package-name> to reinstall the package.


If you're talking about Unity you can try to execute unity --reset on a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T).
