    Desktop and background don't load

    Running a new install of 8.04, and about half the time when I boot, the desktop fails to load. The bars at the top and bottom are present and work fine, but the desktop background is just black and none of my desktop icons are present. Right-clicking on the desktop similarly does nothing. Ideas?

    I have the same issue. Am running GNOME and relatively new to Ubuntu. If you have found your issue would be interested to know.

    You must launch nautilus.
    Either do it from the command line:"nautilus & disown"
    or press Alt+F2 and write "nautilus"
