I have an aspire one running the netbook remix 9.04. When my computer boots up it doesn't have a panel at the top of the screen and any windows I open don't have any window decoration (title bar, buttons etc).
If I change window mode to the standard gnome and then back, it usually gets things working but when the netbook interface starts, it shows the following error
EDIT: I just tried to change back to the netbook remix mode and still have no panel. Not quite sure why.
This started happening (as best I can remember) after I tried the suspend feature, or before I first tried the "change desktop mode" feature. These were both around the same time and I can't remember if one specifically affected it.Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Could not send message to gconf daemon: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus))
Many thanks if anybody has any ideas about what to do next.
