hello everyone..i have installed ubuntu 10.10(gnome desktop environment),in my laptop..everythin was workin well for the past two months...recently,i added kde plasma desktop environment,via ubuntu software centre..now,when i try to log into ubuntu,there is an error message stating "gnome power manager have not been installed correctly.please contact your system administrator",on the topmost right edge of the screen...i tried various commands like,

sudo apt-get clean
sudo dpkg --configure -a
chmod 0777 /temp

but,nothin has solved my problem..many suggested that it may be due to low drive space..but i cant use the mv commands too..really,i'm so helpless and its been three days,after usin my laptop..please provide me with your suggestions,as soon as possible..

thanking u,ganiz...

To clear some hard disk space, see this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1122670

Can you boot into recovery mode? If so I would try running
apt-get update && apt-get install kdm and see if that allows you to log in.
