No taskbar after login/boot-up

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – I request assistance to fix the following annoying problem: In SuSE 11.2, GNOME, the taskbar and menus are not available after boot up. Consequently I do not have access to applications which I urgently need for some work I am doing. Lately I had to reboot a couple of times (by way of terminal window) in the hope that it comes up. Now, however, the taskbar/menues do not come up any more. Thank you in advance for replying. -hr (this message written with SuSE 11.3) (Distributions)
