I have changed base theme and made also some modifications (change fonts, sizes, icons sets etc)
I would like to save all and test some other themes and restore them back.I'm using 12.04.
Is this possible ?

Open a terminal and do this
This will copy the user settings in your home directory in a file named
Open a terminal and do this (I assume your backup file is in your home folder with the name
This will restore the theme settings and the window manager settings. (Note that, If you delete a theme, it can't restore that theme)
Logout and Login again, to see all your settings are restored.
All your configuration and preferences are store in your /home folder, as a hidden folder. If you backup your home folder you'll be able to restore to your previous configuration. For example, I use Lubuntu 12.04 and have a hidden folder in ~/.config/openbox with some of my system settings.
