I installed pcmanfm on my xubuntu since the lack of tabbed browsing was getting in the way. I thought to save space, I would then remove thunar using sudo apt-get purge thunar. I guess I should have used sudo apt-get remove? I don't know what I was thinking. Anyway, now my desktop has gone! Well, the wallpaper is still there and my awn dock is still there, but there is a bar up the top which wasn't there before and my conky has gone... I tried reinstalling thunar but it's not made any difference. (I have included a picture of my desktop if I'm not making any sense)!
Would someone be able to tell me how to get my desktop working again and I will promise never to tinker with it without seeking a tutorial first?
