Getting out of Gnopermicus?
Posted on 2004-11-20
I'm new to Linux (old to AIX), and I've recently started running Linux Red Hat Fedora Core 2 on an Acer Desknote (laptop) and tried the "Gnopermicus" option, just out of curiosity. (Gnopermicus helps blind people etc, to use Linux, I believe.) Now, I can't get the system back to how it was before I ran this program, even after rebooting.
If I boot now, it starts Linux, asks for my login (I'm using root), and then brings up a strange version of the desktop, which consists of:
- A gnopermicus window in the top left, with options something like: 1. Startup Menu, 2. Preferences, 3. Default Preferences, 4. Minimise?, 5. Help, 6. About, & Quit. I can move the mouse to any of these (eg: Quit), and clicking it seems to depress the "Quit" button, but nothing happens after that, and then clicking on other items doesn't even depress them.
- The standard (3) desktop icons.
- A taskbar? down the bottom, which is grey and completely blank (the srart? (excuse the Windows talk) menu isn't even their).
- Nothing else!
I've tried Ctrl-Alt-1, logging on as root, killing gnopermicus, and I think that removed the gnopermicus window from the desktop, but that's all.
I've tried searching the net for info re Gnopermicus, but haven't found anything that has helped, yet.
Any suggestions re how I can get back to normal Linux?
