I did something weird and now my text size is like 3pt on every system window, but when I go in and change my window fonts to larger to something that looks normal, it makes my clock, bash, and other fonts absolutely gigantic. Is there any way I can just roll back my system and it's settings? It wouldn't be much bother as I installed the OS yesterday. I'd hate to have to reinstall entirely though, but I guess it's an option.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

To keep in the paradigm, create a shell script with 3 commands

kquitapp plasma-desktop
rm .kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc
kshell4 plasma-desktop

In Mint's KDE, the file will need to be removed from this path instead:

rm .usr/share/mintkde-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/share/config/plasma-destop-appletsrc
