Gconf Error: No database available to save your configuration


Hello, I am using Ubuntu and a few days ago I tried to install KDE using synaptic, which worked. Unfortunately, it also messed up all the fonts on my main gnome account. So I uninstalled KDE (also with synaptic) and now I'm back to gnome... except the fonts are still ugly, so ugly in fact that they are almost difficult to read.

Anyway, I deleted that account and then made a new one, but now I get an error when I start up, which results in lack of a panel. The font problem seems to have been fixed though, so once I get this problem fixed everything should be back to normal...

Here is my ~./xsession-errors file:

Code:
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/X11/sessreg -a -w /var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/lib/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l ":0" "forest"
/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
SESSION_MANAGER=local/forezt:/tmp/.ICE-unix/10499
Error setting value: No database available to save your configuration: Unable to store a value at key '/desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/current', as the configuration server has no writable databases. There are some common causes of this problem: 1) your configuration path file /etc/gconf/2/path doesn't contain any databases or wasn't found 2) somehow we mistakenly created two gconfd processes 3) your operating system is misconfigured so NFS file locking doesn't work in your home directory or 4) your NFS client machine crashed and didn't properly notify the server on reboot that file locks should be dropped. If you have two gconfd processes (or had two at the time the second was launched), logging out, killing all copies of gconfd, and logging back in may help. If you have stale locks, remove ~/.gconf*/*lock. Perhaps the problem is that you attempted to use GConf from two machines at once, and ORBit still has its default configuration that prevents remote CORBA connections - put "ORBIIOPIPv4=1" in /etc/orbitrc. As always, check the user.* syslog for details on problems gconfd encountered. There can only be one gconfd per home directory, and it must own a lockfile in ~/.gconfd and also lockfiles in individual storage locations such as ~/.gconf

I googled for a lot of the things in here and found no answers. I have no idea where to start, does anyone have any solutions?
