I have had fedora up and running for a couple of weeks now. However when I just booted it up everything was normal and the graphical interface appeared for username and password and then after that something different appeared to normal. It has a terminal window and a browser and xclock instantly loaded but then I can't get to anything else. I just want the normal graphical desktop back. Please help!!

James, first of all, Welcome! Somehow, you've lost Gnome and are now in TWM. This thread may get you going again: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=149294

Hey Bob,
seemingly I am in the same league as James. Just my second day with Linux and someone needs me to have ssh installed so that they could access my server for some installation. I do not know if my program came with an ssh?. tried the web, but do not know what to do with thte files i received in the name of ssh?.Thanks in advance. Bewildered
