Everything was working correctly, but then i did the following: Today, i started Ubuntu not with my current kernel like normally, but with an older Kernel, because i wanted to try something out.
After is started Ubuntu with the older kernel, i noted that all my gnome settings are gone/missing/disappeared.
- My Background-image gone
- Mouse-speed settings gone
- Nautilus settings gone
- Bottom-Task-Bar gone
- Panels (like Top/Bottom-Panels) gone
--> My Desktop looks pretty empty, only the icons for folders/files are visible.
At this point, i was not frightened about that, because I thought, that the reason for all these "missing settings" was, that i am on an "older" kernel right now. So, i thought, my settings will be there again as normal, after changing back from the older to my current kernel.
BUT: After changing back to my current Kernel, all settings like Background-Image, Panels, ... are still missing :-(
I have a feeling, that the process, that runs gnome, does not have the correct access-rights anymore to read all my config-files (for Background, mouse-speed, Nautilus-settings, ....).
When logging in with Guest-Account, all Panels and Menu-Bars are there as normally adn are working correct. -> That means, all installed gnome packages are still working correctly, no need for any update or installation of things. It seems, its just a "settings-problem".
Can anyone help??
