no desktop in gnome for new Slackware 10
I just installed Slackware 10 (from windows2000). Anyway, I installed it successfully and I can get X-windows up using the GNOME desktop (I didn't install the KDE package). HOWEVER, While I have a top and bottom menu, and can access the gnome menu where I can launch programs like mozilla etc I don't have a desktop background (just a fishbone black and white pattern) and I cannot launch the "Browse Filesystem" file manager. I also have no way of getting to a home directory etc. Program's like mozilla work fine but on my friends Slackware 10 system he has several desktop icons and I don't even have a desktop. Any ideas what my issue is with GNOME?
