Ubuntu :: Restore The Desktop Dock Bar ?

I tried to apply some Compiz effects in my Ubuntu but I suppose something went wrong and I unabled something as now, when I turn it on, nothing appears: after login, I can just see the background and my desktop shortcuts: no side dock bar or top bar. I've installed Ubuntu last week and I don't know it very well. When start in in Safe Mode, the top bar appears and, although there's not the side dock bar, another bar appears in the bottom (I think that's normal in the Safe Mode). I have a Terminal shortcut, so I can access it, and when I create shortcutut in the Safe Mode it also appears in the Normal one, so access to software won't be a problem while solving this issue.

My cairo dock is acting funny.The desktop switcher is somehow at the top of the screen now. The other thing is that if i set the dock to the left side of the screen it moves to the right side of the screen but faces the other way, and if I move it to the top it stays at the bottom but is upside down

General :: Remove The Plasma Desktop In SuSE 11.1 And Restore The Original Desktop?
Is there a way in SuSE 11.1 to have the conventional desktop, instead the plasma desktop? I thought that installing KDE 3.5 will fix it, but I was wrong. I really don't want to download back SuSE 11.0, just to have my old desktop layout. SuSE developers should at least leave it as an option than to force people to install it

Fedora :: Set The Left-hand-side Dock To Remain On Screen / Keep Dock Visible?
Although it would resemble the Unity desktop that some of us here may have run away from, is it possible to set the left-hand-side dock to remain on screen, possibly only sliding off when a program window needs it to?

OpenSUSE :: Huge Black Box Behind Cairo Dock & Desktop Effects Won't Launch?
Cairo was working fine for me then randomly I see a huge black box behind it. I also cannot access my desktop effects along with it to activate compiz. I googled here and on the net trying different commands such as

:~> xgl-switch --enable-xgl
If 'xgl-switch' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf xgl-switch

Ubuntu :: Restore The Default Desktop Folder?
I have a Windows Partition for my Windows system and another partition for my Ubuntu. All my data is located in another partition called User). What I did, in the home folder, I deleted the default user folders (Documents, Desktop, Videos,...) and created a link to to the folders in the User partition. So for Desktop, I created a link to User/Desktop folder, for Documents, I created a link in my home folder to the 'User/My Documents'. What happens now is that all the symlinks I have created appear in my desktop instead of the Desktop items I have in User/Desktop. Any idea how to restore the default desktop folder? I have removed the link to the User/Desktop in my home folder and created a new folder named Desktop and nothing happens.

Ubuntu :: Restore Desktop - Common Fixes Not Working?
I am trying to restore my desktop to how it was, what I assume is default. Some background. I am not new to computers but not an advanced user by any means. While very comfortable in Windows, with Linux I feel like I am trying to learn a foreign language by reading a translation dictionary. Most times things go right but when things go wrong I have no idea why. I am running Xubuntu on an ASUS 701. I installed it based on these directions:[URL]

By the way under Sytem Monitor I am told I am running Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) Kernel Linux 2.6.32-27-generic GNOME 2.30.2. I'm not sure what all that means or if it is relevant. I have been thrilled 70% of the time. Twice I have had to do a complete reinstall because so far that is the only way I have found to fix it when things go bad. I am hoping that this time I can avoid that. This morning I installed Wine from WineHQ and followed the directions on this page: [URL] That didn't work so well for me. Somehow it took up 2GB of disk space, scrambled my desktop and Thunderbird no longer worked. I reinstalled Thunderbird but that resulted in losing my inbox I uninstalled Wine but can't figgure out how to free up 1 GB of installed applications, I'll ask about that in a sepatate thread. I have searched and tried all kinds of tips and tricks on fixng the desktop. Deleting /.cache. Deleting /.config. Nothing. My final attempt was following the intructions here: [URL] Still not fixed. I tried all of the steps. Previously I had a tab labled "Apllications" in the upper left hand corner. Next to it was "Places" Then a button for Firefox. The Shutdown door button was in the upper right hand corner. My battery status, network status and clock were to the left of the door.

OpenSUSE :: Restore Original KDE Desktop As It Was From The DVD
When i click the green frog head, things dont behave as before. When i moved my mouse from the Favorites to Applications or to Computer/Recently Used/Leave tabs, the desktop enviroment would automatically switch, without me having to click them. Another thing is if i want leave the green frog toolbar i have to click somewhere withing the green frog head window to close that window. Before i was able to get out of it by clicking on any window out of it, like a firefox window. Also when i go to desktop setup , the only themes remaining are Oxygen and Aya.There were more before. Finally similar programs on the taskbar are grouped together which i don't like. how i could over these problems without having to reinstall the OS , preferably using the opensuse dvd.

General :: Way To Restore Previous Desktop / Need To Reconfigure Everything?
Don't know what I did but while moving the cursor around fast, suddenly my desktop reverted to the default openSUSE 11.3 background (circles) from a custom jpeg image and all the icons disappeared. Rebooting did not solve the situation. Never had this happen before in over twenty years.Is there a way to restore the previous desktop or do I need to reconfigure everything?

On the KDE desktop (openSuse 11.2), I clicked incorrectly an "Eliminate element" option, and the task bar is not present any more; I then selected "Add graphic elements", and the most similar widget to task bar I found is "Activity bar" (translated from Spanish). I selected it and I see a big button on the pannel labeled "Desk"... If I launch several applications, I cannot see them on the panel any more the task bar is not there..How can I restore it?how can elements be moved of position horizontally within the panel?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Upgrade: Restore Default Desktop And Font Settings?
I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid recently. Before upgrading, I had customized my desktop on Karmic with Compiz, Emerald and new set of fonts. After upgrade (which appears to have gone smoothly, yay!), my desktop retained the previous appearance settings. I want to try the factory default gnome appearance settings for Lucid and still stuck with restoring fonts.

What I have done till now:

0. Enabled Visual Effects from Appearance menu.
1. Theme -> Changed to Human
2. Window Manager -> Still using Compiz
3. Window Decorator -> Switched from Emerald to GTK
4. Font -> Changed first 3 font types in the Font tab to Sans, size 10, 4th to Sans Bold and 5th to Monochrome. Rendering -> subpixel smoothing (LCD)

What I want:

1. Is this the default setting? Have I missed anything in restoring default settings?

2. I have done too many changes to firefox font rendering over time. How do I restore default 10.04 font settings for Firefox? I would ideally love to have an option in Ubuntu which would help me restore factory settings.

Slackware :: Desktop Fonts Got Tiny - How To Restore Original Size
When booting into my slack12 fluxbox desktop today my fonts were so small they were hard to read. The same is true if I use kde. I didn't change anything that I can think of. I tried running fc-cache but it didn't change anything. My xorg.conf hasnt changed. Interestingly, my xterm font didn't change size, but the konsole font is tiny like my other desktop fonts.

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome 3 - Lost Desktop - Restore Default Files?
I think I made one tweak too far and as a result have lost my desktop - no top panel, launcher just a blank screen with my desktop background. I've created a new user and everything is fine under that account so I don't think it is terminal. which files I should delete/replace to restore the desktop back to it's default settings? I've deleted the .gnome2, .gconf and .gconfd folders but that has not solved the problem.
