Unhappy Dumb action...

I accidentally tiped (as a normal user) xsri and my background went blue, it has no icons or nothing and the right button (mouse one) doesn't seem to work... What did I do? How do I get back my desktop and icons?

If xsri is running then all you have to do is

killall xsri

in a console
