When you installed gdesklets, you installed SEVERAL other packages. gdesklets was designed and written for the Gnome Desktop Environment, not KDE which BackTrack runs.
Chances are, when you installed the 133 new packages for gdesklets (I have vmware; I can test anything, and trust me, I do) some of those packages will have overwritten system files. For example, installing gdesklets also installs it's dependencies, namely several components of the Gnome Desktop.
When you created your new user, the system generated a default, generic KDE environment. This can all be changed, but requires some work on a higher level than you're at right now.
From what you've posted as of late, I really would recommend against BackTrack for you right now. Try using Ubuntu for a while. Get used to it's ins and outs, and learn more about the filesystem and how it's configured. Once you have a grasp on the Linuxy stuff in an environment you aren't afraid to break, you'll find your way around BackTrack and it's tools much easier.
The easiest and quickest way for you to fix this folly is a partition wipe and reinstall.
I'm not trash-talking, I'm not calling you a nublet, and I'm not trying to discourage you; I'm just trying to guide you in the right direction.
