How to clean a home directory to install from scratch a previously installed distro?
 
I am using linuxmint-10-KDE.
I have several partitions that I will reuse. One of them is /home.
This /home/nomikos has a lot of gnome related files that I want to delete before install the new linuxmint-12-gnome.
So how could I make some clean in my home directory to achieve the cleanest installation?

The main idea of this clean process is don't use old and erroneous configuration files. Maybe deleting some .gnome/ or .gtk directories?

All hidden (.dir) in /home/nomikos can safely go. Please, back-up first. Hidden dirs in home folder of the user are used for storing user specific settings and programs.
Please, back-up first
