Hey all,
I was working as root and now when I log in roots desktop is gone. Nothing happens when I try to launch nautilus from the commandline. We're using IceWM by the way. I tried the reset-default-desktop
script to no avail.  Any ideas?  I know, I know....don't work as root.

Create a new user.
chown -R root:root /home/newrootuser
cp -r /home/newrootuser/* /root/

If that does not work:

mkdir /home/oldroot
chown -R root:root /home/oldroot
mv /root/* /home/oldroot
cp -r /home/newrootuser/* /root/
mv /home/oldroot /root
chown -R root:root /root
