You could change that by running "gconf-editor". The setting for that
variable I have is <no value>. If you double click on it, a box appears
where you can define both type and value; set it to "string" and leave the
value empty - I think.
But when I login as 'root' user, there is no
such Error Message, and
all the Desktop icons are displayed & Nautilus also works fine. Is
there a way to copy the gnome configuration settings for the 'root'
user to the 'normal' user. If yes, I think it would solve the problem.
It would be better to create a new user and copy those. Better that the
ones from root, which could be "special".
I'm unsure, but you could delete the configuration directories
to force a recreation.
What/ where are the configuration directories (I can just copy them to
another location as 'root' and put them back again if re-creation
Well, there are a bunch of directories named .gnome[something], plus
some files, like one named .gtkrc
Also, is it possible to uninstall & then
re-install gnome desktop? I
see many gnome apps in 'Software Management', but no option to remove
gnome itself ?
No need to remove gnome, and it would not work, because the configuration
files are not removed, meaning your system would reuse your local
configuration files again.
Yes, gnome can be removed by deselecting the pattern "gnome" in yast. But
watch out, these operations are really dangerous as they some times remove
packages you do not want to remove. I remember a thread of some one who
ended with an unbootable system.
