I just installed xubuntu 10.04 and then did an update. After reboot there were no desktop icons and right clicking on desktop causes nothing to happen. Still have menu bar at the top and task bar at the bottom.

What happened and how can i fix this?

Thanks
Jim

With a little googling I found how to fix the problem: start xfcedesktop. After reboot it started on its own again like it should.

So the first second part of my question is answered: How do I fix it?

Anybody have any ideas on the first part: What happened? Why did xfcedestop not start up after the upgrade?

Thanks
