Don't! Say instead how did you solve it. So others that'll have the same problem later might find this solution.

Sure. I hit ctrl-alt-F2 and typed:

sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop

ctrl-alt-F6 to return to the dekstop

rebooted

It did not like the the trash or volume control applets so I went to a terminal and typed:

sudo apt-get install gnome-applets

rebooted

Actually I had to reboot, twice more. The first time it installed the trash several times. I removed it, cursed, and restarted, and now it works fine.
