    So, this command will reset the desktop to default, everything will be just like you downloaded and re-installed. The only problem is,, you have Gnome and KDE. I'm not sure which one you use.
    Code:
    mv .gnome2 .gnome2.old
    Code:
    mv .kde .kde.old
    Close your Desktop and logout, next time you log in, you will have a default desktop.

    Hello and welcome!

    In addition to the recommendations made by the others, consider creating system images or some other type of backup so that when things go awry, you can restore your system from the image or backup file. When you want to learn about Linux, fixing breakages is fun and very informative, but if you should need your machine working again quickly, some form of backup in place is highly desirable.

    Let us know how it goes.
