    Hi
    Have a look in the directories ~/.local/share/Trash/ there are two
    directories here called files and info maybe some remnants are being
    left in one of these locations.....

    If it is a KDE4 desktop, then they are plasmoids not icons - and If you
    are leaving your KDE4 while something crashes then it restores some
    settings to the old ones on the next start. You can do two things:
    1. If you have enough time to recustomize your desktop then simple
    rename the -.kde4- hidden directory in your users directory to
    -.kde4old-. Log out and log back into KDE. All settings in KDE are
    restored to the default!
    2. Before logging out close all running applications from the systray
    (amarok, kmail, etc, etc.) to log out without crash.

    I don't know what you did (...In a overzealous attempt...), maybe you
    need to reinstall the whole system. Yeah I know a bit brainless idea but
    it takes less time than hacking and cracking the corrupted config files
    while trying to find out what is wrong.
    Are you have video driver installed? Why don't you try to start sax2
    with that driver instead vesa.
    Are you tried to rename an old xorg.conf backup
    (xorg.conf.+somethingHere) file in your /etc/X11/ directory to xorg.conf
    and start the X again?

    actually when i initialize x11 server ..
    i set the screen resolution that suits my screen(15''&1024*768).. but
    once i switch to runlevel 5 ..
    x11 server increases my screen resolution to higher level
    n my monitor goes out of range...

    That's because the xorg.conf - so, what's with the renaming, and
    starting sax2 -r -m 0=withYourDriver?

    Why you can;t start with sax2 -r -m 0=vesa? Is there any error output?
