[manjaro-dev] a problem with our sonar mate settings package

This problem exists with all of our desktop-settings-packages when you 
install them on a system that has been created before the existence of 
the settings packages.
At that time the files in /etc/skel where delivered by 
manjaro-tools-iso-profiles - so they are pre-installed and not tracked 
as owned by a package by pacman.
In this transitional period now people with older installs have to 
remove their /etc/skel folder manually before installing the settings 
Maybe the easiest to do it from the terminal:
sudo rm -rf /etc/skel
