I want to backup user settings and programs configuration.
I came from this question How to backup settings and list of installed packages . There, settings and personal data are backup, not only configurations.
I don't want to backup:
- personal data;
.profile, ... (if I don't install a program that was previously installed, there may be an error);
I want to backup:
- All installed programs configurations
- Ubuntu configurations (keyboard, date, tweaks, ...)
I don't bother to backup a program configuration that I won't install, because normally it has low memory size.
I guess that if I backup all etc folder and hidden files on home directory (except
.profile) what I want will be done, can someone confirm it to me?
