RE: Missing icons

Nautilus was definitely broken. Typing the command in the terminal just hung indefinitely. Turns out it has something to do with firing up two vncserver’s in the .bash_profile’s for a couple of accounts.


Thank you much for your input. It did get me started in the right direction.

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.
