Hi Jonathan. As a fellow FC2 user, are you using Gnome, or KDE. I use KDE, and 
do remember losing all the icons once before, but can't remember the fix.

I don't use Gnome, but I found something on Google, where someone had messed 
with Nautilus, which apparently is responsible for drawing icons, background, 
and the right click to get the menu. Perhaps Nautilus crashed, and is why you 
lost all the icons, etc.

Have you tried logging out, and backin.

Perhaps try creating a new user, and see if you get the default icons for the 
new user.

If you're using KDE like me, I'll try and find out what the fix was.


btw. We need to start an FC2 users club. A bit like the Morris Minor club, but 
for ancient distros that still work well.
