RE: Missing icons

You were absolutely correct. I tried the nautilus command and it just hung. Then I checked to see if it was happening for other users and it was. I was using up2date to update packages a few at a time from the fresh install of FC3. I must have either corrupted some of its’ dependencies, or messed something up while setting up VNC. Either way, I set it to download / install all updates over night and re-logged in this morning, and boom, desktop had been restored.


Thank you much for the insight, pointed me into the right direction. I am very new to gnome and am starting to really love the jump from windows to Linux.

Sounds like your nautilus is broken. Nautilus is to gnome what explorer is to windows. It manages your desktop to.
When faced with a problem regarding the desktop and browsing files it is most likely your nautilus installation is broken in some way.

Open up a terminal and type: nautilus [enter]

Please post errors (if any)

ps is it broken for all users?

I am new to the Gnome desktop environment. I have recently installed Fedora 3. Things appeared to have went smoothly, until I noticed that the wallpaper is no longer showing and the icons for home, trash, and My Computer have disappeared. Also, the file manager will not startup. After multiple reboots etc, I have yet to figure out what has happened to them. Is there any log files that would be useful anywhere to see if they are loading correctly after boot? I have looked thru a handful of logs and have not seen any problems. I guess I am at a loss as of right now as to where to look next. Any direction would be invaluable.
