Desktop icons vanished!
In trying to set a "fixed" IP address for the Linux machine on the network (unsuccessfully), I have managed to make all my desktop icons disappear.
I saw a screen which talked about KDE resource allocation - I'm not sure how I got to it, and I can't find it again. I closed it, and the icons disappeared from the desktop and the desktop picture started flashing on and off at about 2 second intervals.
The desktop icons are still in their folder (/home/keithj/Desktop) but I can't get them to reappear. I can run stuff from the taskbar, but that's a pain compared with having all the stuff I use on the desktop.
Can anyone tell me what I've done, and how to fix it?
I'm running "installed" Knoppix, which I think is Debian, on a Coppermine 600MHz.
