I have replaced the nVidia card setting in xorg.conf with the proper one
that worked with 6.06. But no luck.
I "Slocated" for .gnome2 and had so many that I'm reluctant at this time in
removing it from /home/ray/.gnome2 until I can know more about it.
It has many sub-dirs as "/home/ray/.gnome2/ ****" as well.
I am ignorant as to its usage and fear to render myself unable to enter the
OS at all...
Is there as well. Same caveats apply...
What you get is the same desktop as was originally installed by Ubuntu. New
.gnome2 etc. files and directories are created. System (OS or X server)
settings, in the main, are not stored in your Home directory. The mv command
does not delete the files so you could reverse the process by mv
.gnome2.old .gnome2 . You shouldn't need to though.
