switchdesk



Experimenting with switchdesk, I changed to the XFce desktop which went
fine.  But, I can't go back to Gnome, or to KDE, or to TWM.  Switching back
to the "default" desktop didn't work either.  Switchdesk suggested deleting
the .Xauthority file which I did but that caused an endless list of error
messages.  GNOME now issues messages about not being able to start the
"Settings Daemon",
or the Gnome-clock-applet,
or loading OFIID,
or Bonobo - Warnings,
or the GdkPixbuf assertion 'filename != NULL' failed,
and Warning: destroyed file still being monitored.

X windows, for root at least, is now almost useless.  I can only open one
terminal window within the GUI.  For the record, This is a pure
test/learning machine and no data will be lost.  I guess that I can copy the
configuration files from another account or do a reinstall, but I'd like to
know if this is a bug or something I did wrong.

Thank you.
