Change skin settings by ssh

I changed my skin (on a raspberry pi) and the start up page within the skin. However there appears to be a bug with the skin and I can’t select anything on the screen except for a link to the home page, where nothing works either.
Anyone know a command I can use to reset the defaults over ssh as that appears to be working?

Edit guisettings.xml under ~/.kodi/

I think it’s ‘’

I’ve the same problem : i just want to start OSMC by removing the skin that blocked it.
So, i succeed to reach my raspberry with putty… but what i have to do now exactly?
Sorry i’m a noob and i’m french… but i’m working on it!
Thank you in advance for your help.

mv ~/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml ~/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml.bak
sudo systemctl restart mediacenter

Wahoo it works! Thanks so much for your quick reply
