after a bad installation of Ximian I have just a blue desktop, a mouse cursor and a menu can pop up when I click with middle bottom of my mouse. And that's all. I can't see any applet, any icon, any panel <:(
No more kde, no more pure Gnome.
Although, through this popup menu I can acess Kterm (a shell command line terminal) and type kde (and it opens), or konqueror (and it opens), kmail (and it opens), so what is the problem?
How establish a stable Gnome or KDE again?
Is your case worst than mine? :)

I start from command line: WINDOWMANAGER=kde startx.
KDE desktop loads with taskbar, panel, all my icons.

I use ximian-evolution for email.

After a period of time, I notice the desktop is now gnome desktop with
only Start Here, My Home, and Trash icons. Taskbar and panel are still
up and functional.

What's up with this? Any similar experiences?
