Heum ...

Just an idea never needed it ..

maybe install

v   gnome-desktop                   
p   gnome-desktop-data              - Common files for GNOME 2 desktop 
p   gnome-desktop-environment       - The GNOME Desktop Environment       

in a terminal   as root

type "aptitude install 

or seperately

good luck !
