I've upgraded my openSuse os from 11.3 to 11.4. Everything went smoothly but now I cannot see any item in main menu (analog of Start in Windows) and I cannot set any background picture, so now I see a single color desktop. KDE desktop is working properly.
Machine specs: Laptop AMD Turion TL-56 Video Card Nvidia Go 7200 (driver from NVidia is installed)
I think there are some settings which are now preventing GNOME to initialize properly still cannot find any that could change the behavior.
