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

Mark

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.
