~/. locale cannot be deleted completely
« on: November 22, 2020, 08:58:51 AM »
After I deleted the ~/.local folder (an empty folder) ,and deleted the first few lines of code in the ~/.profile, it will be re-created every time the system restarts. How can I completely delete it? What other scripts control it?

Hi ONE
Maybe it's being restored from your backup? After you make your deletions, run a backup and see if it still happens.

Hi ONE
Do you have a persistent  /home  directory?
What does this command return:
Code: [Select]
showbootcodes

Hi ONE
Based on the information you provided, I see nothing that should alter your  ~/.profile  file or recreate  ~/.local.

Hi ONE
Why are you trying to remove  ~/.local ?

Hi ONE
Why are you trying to remove  ~/.local ?
I feel a bit redundant.

Hi ONE
~/.local/bin  is a place you can put scripts and other executables and the system will find them because they are in the
path. It also doesn't require a separate backup or an extension to be created.

I know, but it's really no use to me.
