Clearing AppData in Mac and Linux

If you suspect that your instance of MatterControl is suffering from a corrupted configuration file, it may be necessary to clear the contents of your MatterControl local data folder.

Delete or Rename the system folder:   ~/.local/share/MatterControl

After deleting this folder:

  • All of your saved configurations will be permanently deleted
  • If you were logged in then your settings were saved to the cloud and will be restored when you log back
  • You can also start by renaming rather than deleting this folder

Once MatterControl has been restarted, you should be prompted with the normal startup procedure where you can log back in or create a new printer.
