View Full Version : [ubuntu] problem with desktop in karmic

March 10th, 2010, 06:25 PM
to begin, i have not found this problem listed anywhere else, so the only thing i knew to do was start a new thread.

i have been running karmic since it was publicly released, and have moderate to advanced linux knowlege. however recently, upon attempting to update my nvidia drivers to 195, i expereinced a problem. i am not sure how to describe it, so i included a screenshot...

near as i can tell, the desktop is only showing up on the right side of the screen. any attempt to move icons, etc to the left side of screen are unsuccessful. i am at my wits end. any suggestions would be welcomed!

<edit> i just reset ubuntu to default using this command:

rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
