Hi all,
I'm new with openSUSE and working with v 12.3 on VMWare virtual machine.
During installation I selected all the desktop environments and all the components as well. I have been working with the default KDE since I installed it. However, when I decided to try out a different one, I closed the current session then selected GNOME from the menu before logging in again. That was when disaster struck! The system loaded an empty desktop and that was it, no icons, no panels, no reaction to keyboard shortcuts, nothing! Just the bare desktop background staring at me. Of course restarting loads the previous session, and since I had selected auto-login at restart I keep getting the plain desktop each time I reboot. I'm locked out!!!
Please, how can I go about to get in again, and also, how do I get GNOME working?
