Gnome 2.6 and Slackware 10: Desktop icons disappeared and background has to be reset


I'm having a small problem with gnome 2.6.whatever that came with Slackware 10.0. Everything worked fine for a couple days after installation, but the other day I booted up my laptop and started gnome and the desktop icons and the background image failed to display, instead, I saw the default X background. Furthermore, my menu that pops up when right-clicking on the desktop no longer shows up. My taskbars and windows seem to work just fine though. Can anyone help me out with this one?

Did you update something? Try moving your gnome config files to a temporary directory and start with a fresh gnome config to see if it's some corrupted file.

did you something with swaret?
if you did upgrade ,do swaret with --dep (dependency checks)
(upgrade from previous gnomes do not install some needed packages).

set the background colour in gconf editor, that should fix it.

edit: in "applications>system tools>configuration editor" then /apps/nautillus/preferences. ie. the "show_desktop" is connected to "background_color"

Your gnome files are in /home/username/.gnome/ and /home/username/.gnome2/.
All your personal preferences are in "hidden" files; that is to say, anything beginning with a dot in your home folder.
