How to save panels before upgrading to SoydX-9

Postby Matt » 02 Feb 2018 13:09

Hello,

Before upgrading from SolydX-8 to SoyldX-9, is it possible to save all the panels (backup) from ver_8 and then restore them all into ver_9?

I have set a good number of shortcuts and links on my panels and it would be a pain to reconfigure them all.

Thank you for your advice on this.

Matt

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "panel" but you should backup the hidden content of your /home directory, that is all directories and files starting with a dot, and /home/.../Desktop. The xfce config is under ~/.config/xfce4 but just in case you need anything else backup the rest too. Additionally a backup of /etc can't hurt.

Many thanks Ilu and sorry for my late reply.

As for "panel" I mean the task barre where the menu, the clock and all useful icons are placed. I have added my own with quite many shortcuts to files and scripts. So, instead of redoing it all after a system update, I was thinking about backing the panels up and then restore them all in the new version of SolydX...

So, thank you for your advice. I will give it a try.

if you're doing a direct update (i.e: no reinstall). you didn't need to save the config files. the prefered way is having separated /home partition so that you didn't have to reconfigure everything on update/reinstall.
