Hmmm, you say you can get to terminal right?
If you can login to a terminal (either console or other terminal) under
your normal user account, try renaming .gnome2 and .gnome2_private (they
are usually hidden directories):
mv .gnome2 .gnome2-old
mv .gnome2_private .gnome2_private-old
Then log out and try logging in again and see if it makes any
difference. With any luck Gnome should re-create the folders and fix
If all else fails just rename the folders back.
Hope this helps.
