View Full Version : [gnome] Gnome Desktop buggered/frozen/can't open folders in GUI

Here is my problem. I'm using Gnome. Basically, all of my desktop icons disappeared, I can't right click on the desktop and get a context menu or anything, and it would SEEM I can't open folders with the GUI.

I love the command line and all, but I think I want to get this fixed. I've tried rebooting, all that I'm able to do is change the background (I change the background via appearances, reboot, and it's changed).

LOL, any advice? I'm clueless about this kind of thing with Ubuntu and Gnome.

I might just upgrade to Karmic and see if that solves it but I'd rather wait and try and fix it.

If I can't figure it out I'm going to try installing KDE.

Okay, running KDE and I STILL can't open any folders, though the desktop looks fine.
