Lost desktop icons in gnome after uprade


Yesterday I did a dist-upgrade on one of my etch boxes and now my desktop icons are gone; my Computer, Home, Downloads, and Trash. Anyone know how to restore these? (The other etch box is fine.)

Do you mean the'yre gone, like missing, or that they have the wrong icon on them?

This could be my problem also, how did you fix it?

I wondered about that, but it's been fine for quite a while, through several upgrades.
