gnome parts stop working or vanish from Ubuntu Hardy
Yes. I did something, but I have no idea what I did.
Several things are wrong with my gnome desktop.
1. With that over, when I select System->Administration->
from the gnome panel, the Package Manager (synaptic) menu item has vanished.
2. When I select System->Preferences->Main Menu from the gnome panel, nothing happens other than the menu parts clear from the screen.
3. When I open the context menu (right click) of Applications->Edit Menu from the gnome panel, nothing happens other than the menu parts clear from the screen.
I could go on. I suspect [aka, hope & pray] that resolution to these items will clear or point the way to repair of the rest of things.
I tried to remove and replace the panel widget without success.
I tried re-install of various gnome parts without success.
I tried searching through various home folder gnome artifacts without success.
(grin, blush) It might help if I knew what I was looking for in the first place.
