The task bar is missing and the are numerous error messages. Eventually discovered the cleaner WAS unplugging server becuase it was easier than bending over to plug her vac in.... ;-0)

How do I repair, re-install Gnome without having to totally rebuild the server? (Or is this the only fix?)

Regards

One easy way is to delete or rename some or all of the .gnome* directories in your home directory.   Start with ".gnome-desktop" and see if you can log on successfully.  If not, continue with the other gnome directories until you are able to log on without corruption.   Gnome will build a new settings directory for you.

 If you rename the directories you can experiment with restoring your old settings from the various applications. -- but it's probably just as easy to let a new one be built.
