    You lost all the files and folders that were there. If You want to create Desktop folder back open terminal and type :

    mkdir /home/<yourusername>/Desktop

    sure there is, it is just a lot of work (and in this case obviously unneccesary)

    as long as you didn't write lots of data over the alledgedly removed files you could try and get them back.

    HOWTO undelete removed files and directories on an ext3 file system

    mkdir /home/<yourusername>/Desktop
    if it were just the case of mistakingly removing the default opensuse dekstop folder one could also easily restore this by copying the Desktop folder with initial contents back from the skeleton user, used when adding new users to the system.
