[SOLVED] Z11 - System Monitor Applet needs to be reset

I added the system monitor applet to the taskbar. I found the info to be good but a little too big, so I shrunk some components. Things starts to shift in the window, so I tried the MOVE option which made it worse. Now everything is overlapped

How can I reset this back to the default layout? I cant seem to locate the settings anywhere

Hi, can you right-click the system monitor applet and select 'unpin launcher'? TRY that first. Keep us posted.

If I right click on the applet, I get:
Dock Preferences
Icon Foreground
Icon Background
Icon Text
About AWN System Monitor

*no unpin launcher

OK, I would start over by removing system-monitor via the terminal:

Code: Select all
sumo apt-get purge gnome-system-monitor


then do a system update:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

Next reboot machine and reinstall gnome-system-monitor.

I removed/updated/installed gnome-system-monitor
However the layout is still all jumbled overlaying on top of each other

Would the settings be located somewhere in .config?

That seemed to have fixed it

Code: Select all
rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
logout
login


Thank you
