Any way I can restore them? Is there a gnome settings backup (similar

Nautilus crashed. Just restart it (alt-f2, type "nautilus", enter.

That did not work. Is there a backup config file that can be restored
from? Clicking on Nautilus shortcut in panel also does not bring about

Also, there are no desktop icons & right-clicking on the desktop dows
not result in anything. (no menu)

All the icons are displayed by nautilus, so if it doesn't run, there are none.

Try, in a terminal (xterm, gnome-terminal):

ps ax | grep -i nautilus

If it is running, kill it:

killall nautilus
killall -9 nautilus

and finally, restart it:

nautilus &

and see if it writes an error message that gives a clue.

Defaults... I'm unsure, but you could delete the configuration directories to force a recreation.
