    Gnome Desktop


    So i installed Mandriva limited edition 2005 and was happily using the gnome desktop while i was at work today someone used my computer and has rearranged my desktop completly am wondering if i can reset the desktop somehow to go back to it's default settings also is there a way to turn off the auto login so then it asks for my password so no one else can access it.

    I am not so sure about the desktop settings but as for the auto-login, launch (as root):
    Code:
    gdmsetup
    There is a setting in there somewhere (sorry, I am using KDE so I can't tell you where the setting is exactly).
