Re: Fail to start Gnome desktop

Hi Wouter,

Thanks for your advice.

As per your advice, I performed following steps/test with the same result 
obtained :-Gnome desktop failed to start

On KDE console
$ cd /home/satimis
$ mv .gnome .gnome-backupdir
$ mv .gnome2 .gnome2-backupdir

logout and relogin GNOME as USER

login GNOME as USER without problem but still could not start GNOME desktop

Rebooted PC and login GNOME as USER again.  Same result

# locate .gnome
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/.directory
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/.order
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/calc.desktop
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/draw.desktop
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/impress.desktop
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/math.desktop
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/printeradmin.desktop
/home/satimis/.gnome/apps/ 1.1.0/writer.desktop

Same directories and files re-created.
