How do I clear all the settings for Vinagre to take it back to a brand-new, virgin state? I accidentally typed a connection in wrong and I cannot figure out how to delete it. Also some of my connections are not working correctly and I think that if I could flush the whole thing clean it might fix those issues. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it remembers the previous settings/connections.

Found it here: ~/.local/share/vinagre/history

Open it with your favorite text editor and go to town or simply delete the file.

simple find the configuration files with this command :

find . -name vinagre

easy :)

That will only find files whose names are exactly vinagre (and which are somewhere contained within the current directory). Unless all Vinagre configuration files are stored inside a directory called vinagre (perhaps inside ~/.config), this is unlikely to work. A better way would be to search for files in the home directory with vinagre in their names (and to allow capitalization, too): find ~ -iname \*vinagre\* – Eliah Kagan Jun 5 '12 at 8:06
