    All versions pssibly ? The "Desktop" disappeared as a Drectory accidently

    Hi ,

    1- Accidently my "DESKTOP" has disappeared as a "DIRECTORY"

    ie as usual with at least the 2 icons_LINKS:

    KNOPPIX_Link" and "Knoppix_Flash_Install_Link"...

    after many "Hdd_Re-Install" (optin "keep DATA).

    2- Even the "new false desktop" is locked (not writable).

    3- Booting hanged much times on loading the graphic module.

    4- This was overcamed by applyng 4 good cheatcodes:

    a- xmodule=amd/ati very difficult to find

    b- screen=800x600 and fb800X600 (for example)

    c- noagp

    5- At the present situation the old good Desktop is accessible

    by the path "/home/knoppx/Desktop"...

    "Drag and Drop" being so a little more difficult.

    this being one of my GOALS

    6- Has anybody a good idea for returning "DESKOP" as

    a "DIRECTOR" ?

    Which "Files / Directories" may be useful ?...

    Thanks you very much.
