Problem:

After changing the monitor resolution and rebooting, the boot-up process was very slow, and after logging in as root, megacity windows manager wouldn't start. The desktop finally appeared but with a black background and unassociated icons.

Solution:

Being a newbie I tried changing the theme, which gave an error megacity not loaded or gconf incorrectly setup. I then tried to run gconf, after searching for gconf*, and I was able to find gconftool-rebuild file. While playing around in SYSTEM>>RUN PROGRAM I found the kdesu -n red-carpet, then ran kdesu -n gconftool-rebuild, and my desktop appeared normal again with all of the proper file associations.
