Re: Gnome desktop does nothing no icons



I have seen something similar.  Are esd and sound event enabled?
There is a problem with esd/alsa blocking apps from starting.  This
includes gnome-session because it plays the login sound.  Try killing
esd and see if you can start new apps.

Following up on the other regular machine which is
also running Rawhide, I find that ~/.gnome2 directory
has

session and the one that has the problem does not

[olivares localhost ~]$ ls .gnome2
accels   gedit-metadata.xml    nautilus-scripts  share
evince   gnome-volume-control  panel2.d          yelp
gedit-2  keyrings              session
yelp.d
[olivares localhost ~]$ cd .gnome2
[olivares localhost .gnome2]$ cat session
