    There is nothing on the Desktop

    Hello,

    I uninstalled some packages using synaptice package manager.
    Most of them are related to Evolution. After the reboot, there is nothing on the desktop. There is just a empty screen of ubuntu8.04. There is no top panel and bottom panel. It is not showing my previous files, which were on desktop.

    I think, i unnecessarily uninstalled some packages. Is there anyway i can restore my system. I don't remember the package names which i uninstalled. One last thing, If i cannot restore my OS, Is there a way to reinstall without effecting my other os vista.

    Even if you don't know the answer, some suggestions with direction are appreciated.

    Thanks

    With Ubuntu running smoothly on 3 computers, what should I do with all the spare time?

    Or you could try this:

    Press Alt+F2 and enter the commands below:


    killall gnome-panel

    or

    kill `pidof gnome-panel`

    then restart
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    Re: There is nothing on the Desktop

    Thanks guys for suggesting me sth. But, it didn't work.

    After booting into Ubuntu, I can see my mouse cursor on the desktop, other than that, i cannot see anthing. If i try to right click or left, nothing is happening.

    When booting, it saying that, it is mounting my windows drive, but i cannot see that drive on the desktop.

    If i press Alt+F2 also nothing is happening. But, If i press ctrl+alt+del it is giving me the logout screen.

    I would start reinstalling "ubuntu-desktop" (which will reinstall all packages you erroneously deleted, but also evolution) to see if this brings your account back to life.
