Yeah Fred it's pretty fubared, lol. I just discovered Nautilus is busted too. It really doesn't matter. Elyssa is so close, and until then I have an account in the kids Edubuntu installation. I may even install the Elyssa Beta, or maybe I'll wait for a release candidate. In any case the reason I was messing around now was for fun, and because I didn't care if I broke anything. It is still somewhat functional as I am typing this here. I've basically got the Gnome task bar, and can launch any application except Nautilus. Themes, Nautilus, and the desktop, are broken. Compiz is working great though. I can still spin the cube. It just looks a bit funny with no sides, lol. Oh and Gnome thinks all my other partitions are external drives, which of course I can't access. What a mess.
Anyway I'm off to bed. See you guys tomorrow.
Edit: Well I downloaded the Elyssa Beta, so it looks like I will be joining the testing crew.
Edit2: Installed and testing.
