    Question How to restore GNOME without reinstall OpenSuSE?

    Hello people! I'm new with Linux.
    I have installed OpenSUSE 11.4 with GNOME and it works perfect. But when i tried to uninstall Mozilla Firefox with other Mozilla adds, it began to uninstall all default gnome apps. And my GNOME menu and desk was empty. I tried to set back apps and to install again Mozilla stuff with other GNOME apps, so some apps has restored but main menu has half apps not like default. But after restart OS startet with IceWM, not with GNOME at all... So how to restore GNOME default mode without reinstalling OpenSUSE?

    Try to reinstall the gnome pattern
    Code:
    su -
    zypper install -t pattern gnome
    in a terminal (you can use a xterm).
    By the way I find it strange that you confirmed to uninstall everything,
    because yast as well as zypper ask you before they start uninstalling
    additional packages, didn't you read what it wanted to uninstall?

    Thank you!
    By the way i read what yast zypper ask, but i thought that this additional apps just use Mozilla, but don't include to deinstall. Anyway now everything is ok.

    So now you are warned in the future to have a detailed look at what
    yast/zypper asks you. ;-)
    Glad to hear it is solved.
