Lost keyring and terminal background after loosin home directory
I lost part of my stting in my home directory because of a system crash.
Before the crash I had the following features that I would like get back
(I did not install /configure them on purpose but they appeared
suddenly, much to my pleasure):
1. I only had to give my password once during a session after which I
could use synaptic and a root console without being asked for a
2. The background of a root console was white, the background of an
ordinary console black.
How do I get these features back again?
