Want to reinstall Gnome, basic applets are crashing


Installed FC3 and was liking it.

I was fooling around with yum installs and I installed openswan from dag. I also switched my ethernet ip from dhcp to manual.

Upon reboot, all my basic Gnome applets, like Window Chooser and Show Desktop crashed upon login. I tried to readd them, but they crash on my attempts.

Now, when I minimize a window, I lose it.

I tried uninstalling openswan and reseting my ethernet to dhcp; that didn't help.

I'd like to get those applets working again. Is there something like a Gnome reinstall or repair I can do to get those applets working again?

I sometimes have that sort of problem.

I made a note of gnome configuration files in the home directory that you can delete to make gnome revert to default settings. Don't know if it will help but they are:

.gconfd
.gnome
.gnome2_private
.gnome_private
.gqviewrc
.gtkrc-1.2-gnome2
.gconf
.gnome2
.gnome-desktop
.nautilus

Delete gnome files won't help

Thanks for the advice, unfortunately, that didn't work

I still get the errors.
