deleted system applications

I accidentally deleted or disabled system applications like "Sound", Powersettings, Settings and pretty much all applications linked on the top right of the screen (also bluetooth).

I wonder if it is possible to restore those without having to completely reinstall Fedora because it took me a long time to accidentally install everything correctly to get it working, except these small system programmes of course.

Would really appreciate any help!

Hi: If you're running Gnome and you don't want to over-complicate it, just open a terminal window and do

rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity .cache .dbus .dmrc .mission-control .thumbnails ~/.config/dconf/user ~.compiz*

And you should be back to stock desktop.

If you were playing with yum when it broke you can use

yum history

to try to spot the transaction where the problem was originated and use

yum history undo XX

to undo it.

Kind regards
