Question Restore default install settings?


Is there anyway to basically throw out all of my config files and restore the default files created by the debian-installer? I borked my ability to display remote X applications and can't figure out which setting I need to relax to give apps permission to do this. Thanks.

If it's just x you need to reconfigure, I think this will work:

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

I believe thats the command for debian, I'm on my ubuntu box at the moment , sorry. It might be dpkg-reconfigure x-window-system or something else like that, I'll be on my deb box later, will give it a shot
