Did you delete the icons from your "Desktop" folder in your home?

entrencher 11-26-2008 04:48 AM

No I have not delete any icons from the desktop folder!! they are disappearing automatically

You can always delete your .kde profile in home, log out, log back in and everything will be set back to default.

Any custom setting you had for the KDE environment will be lost and need to be re-configured.

No need to do a re-install of the OS, this isn't Windows.

How do you assume the OP runs KDE?

@entrencher, again... which OS and which Desktop Manager are you running on? Does the panel show up?

OS is RHEL5 and Desktop manager is GNOME. Panel is visible only and right click is not working !!!!

Try removing .gconfd/saved_state.

Hello guys

Actually Nautilus was not also working . I have tried removing the .gconfd/saved_state file. It worked. Now the have been solved. Thanks to jay73.

Thanks once again

One more solution
 
I found out the reason, I use YUM and while removing some other program, Nautilus got removed along with it.

Right the solution of this problem is :

run the following command :

yum install nautilus

N.B. Your yum repository must be configured.
