All the icons disappeared from gnome panel / nautilus in unstable
I'm running Debian unstable with the latest packages (upgraded today), and
today after a while I decided to log out of X and then logged back in from gdm..
gconf asked if it could convert the settings, and I accepted.. after that nothing happened, I
only got gray screen. Well, I could move the mouse cursor but nothing else..
Well.. pressed ctrl+alt+backspace and tried again. Still nothing. Only gray.
Then I removed all the .gnome* .gconf* .nauti* .metaci* files from my
homedirectory, and also from /tmp/* but I still couldn't get gnome working
properly. Now I got black desktop, with gnome panel maybe 50 pixels wide.
Then I decided to remove all the gnome related packages and reinstalled with
"apt-get install gnome gnome-desktop".. also removed all the .gnome* .gconf*
files from homedirectory again.
Now, I got somewhat working desktop, but without icons.. no icons in
nautilus, no icons in gnome-panel..
More problems.. when I try to change/check theme settins.. from Desktop ->
Preferences -> Themes I get this kind of error:
"The default theme schemas could not be found on your system. This means
that you probably don't have metacity installed, or that your gconf is
Well, I have metacity installed (also purged and reinstalled it)..
I guess it's gconf related.. ?
