Following on from last night, the beagle 0.2.9 stuff from the Edgy 
repositories installed ok and now works, but uninstalling the old 
version beforehand using Synaptic seems to have whipped out some 
references or links or something that have wiped out my desktop. I have 
the same background now, but no icons. My /home/<name>/Desktop folder is 
intact, but that is not what is displayed and I cannot drag files to the 
currently visible 'desktop'. If I try to open Places/Desktop, for 
example, I get an error message box saying

Could not open location 'file:///home/neil/Desktop'

Details: There is no default action associated with this location

Any idea how to fix this? I would guess that Ubuntu has lost the 
reference to my desktop folder and I getting some default background, 
but this is way out of my depth.
