Which window manager are you using? If KDE, then .kde (or .kde2) should
contain all your settings in meaningful places. If GNOME, then .gnome
(and/or .gnome2) should hold your settings. Private settings in
.gnome2_private can be neglected.
If you intend to pass your settings to another computer, be sure to only
overwrite the directories which hold look-and-feel settings. Also be aware
that different versions of KDE/GNOME might/could lead to inconsistencies.
The description of your problem is vague, so if this did not answer your
question, elaborate further.
Hope it helps,
