View Full Version : [ubuntu] Desktop wiped

January 17th, 2009, 06:43 AM
On a newly installed version of Intrepid, the first time I VNC'd into the box, the desktop disappeared, Icons gone and the background changed. Logging out and back in and restarting the box did not fix it. Any ideas? It seems that part of Gnome stopped working? I can't change the desktop background in the preferences either.


OK, I followed the instructions by Mocha in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=974039&highlight=desktop

That restored the background. So now the question is, where did the desktop icons go and the files in the desktop folder?
