I messed up - The Desktop Disappeared PLEASE HELP
Hi I recently saw a clip on youtube with someone running a hack that allows a xscreensaver to be run as a desktop in root. These are the terminal commands I ran:
gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false
OK So the Desktop disappeared and icons disappeared and I can not right click the desktop anymore as it is not loading!! I tried to re-instate with this command:
gconftool-2 –type bool –set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop true && nautilus
Which did not work - same problem black desktop no icons!! So I tried a variation of the command above:
gconftool-2 –type bool –set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop true
And still no joy. Im a bit stumped as to what to try next please cold somone assist with this. Is this because I am not doing it under root, should I add sudo before the command and enter my power user password??
