Last night I installed (full install) Fedora C9 on my laptop. Everything went smoothly. I added a few plugins to Firefox and used Yumextender to install a few programs that I needed.
This morning I booted up and logged in and found nothing but the background on the desktop. (no trash can, user directory, or even the one folder that I had placed on the desktop to log any changes (Removed\ or\ Added) I had made.
I checked the user directory (home/sam/Desktop) and the folder I placed on the desktop is there and has the information see below:
[sam@sam ~]$ ls -la Desktop
drwxr-xr-x 3 sam sam 4096 2008-07-26 08:20 .
drwx------ 36 sam sam 4096 2008-07-26 09:21 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 sam sam 302 2008-07-26 08:20 fedora-filezilla.desktop
-rw-rw-r-- 1 sam sam 8893 2008-07-25 19:37 preferred-mail-reader.desktop
drwxr-xr-x 2 sam sam 4096 2008-07-25 20:06 Removed or Added
I checked another user and root logins and found the same thing in those directories. Also I try to place something on the desktop and it doesn't show up (nothing happens with a right click of the mouse or if I try to move an application from the menu to the desktop.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
