Home Manager will not update

Home manager says I have files in it’s way… It says to move them what would be the correct way to go about this?

You should add an argument for -b flag. Home manager suggests backup but you could choose anything what is not an empty string. So, the full command would be home-manager switch -b backup as it says.

If you won’t mind those files you could just remove them rm ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini ~/.config/gtk-4.0/settings.ini ~/.gtkrc-2.0

So if I remove them will they regenerate when the GTK app is used next time?

These are settings for gtk where theme and icons are set [GTK - ArchWiki]. You have enabled gtk (gtk.enable = true; somewhere in your config) [Appendix A. Configuration Options]. That’s why home manager tries to write files to those locations. If you disable gtk option then home manager won’t try to overwrite those files.

Thank you! I see where the conflict is at now
