    Angry openSUSE 12.3 Gnome desktop corrupted!

    Following a recent, in the last 3 days, install of security and suggested updates the original Gnome desktop has been significantly modified.
    The favorites down the LHS of the screen have gone, the selection and hence the grouping of programs from the RHS of the screen is no longer available - and its been replaced by what looks like a very basic drop down menu of limited choices.
    The text and icon sizes at the top of the screen have increased in size. Very annoying.

    How do I get back to the original Gnome desktop provided with the distro?

    Can you tell us a little bit about your configuration - version of
    openSUSE and video card would be useful pieces of information.

    Thumbs up Re: openSUSE 12.3 Gnome desktop corrupted!

    Issue solved. Wasn´t updates that cause the corruption of the desktop, it was me! I had a fiddle with settings including the Graphics: Intel lvybridge Mobile Forced feedback was OFF - I put it ON. Reverting that setting back to OFF and rebooting has everything back to normal.

    Much relieved. Thanks for the quick responses, much appreciated.

    I guess you switched to the *original* GNOME Shell desktop
    It was not corrupted at all. Shell application icons are naturally large
