    no menu, no -+ re-size window options, how to repair?


    Hi friends, I have a big problem, the bottom left main menu has disappeared, the panel is there, and the rest of it is there, such as clock and show desktop icon.

    also the windows, any window, don't have any re-size or close widow option

    when I start the computer, the bottom panel is shown, but once it disappears (auto-hide) it never comes back.

    The windows, none of the windows can be moved, once opened they stay where there are, and there is no double click to full-screen possibility.

    Thanks,



    Wrenchman

    just so you know. You forgot to mention

    Code:

    Code:
     Desktop: N/A


    Oh well, try

    Code:
    inxi -Fxz
    instead. Do you know off hand what Desktop you are running? Cinnamon, or whatever?

    Edit: Thinking out loud. Did you do a md5sum check of downloaded Mint iso file before installing to check and make sure you did not have a corrupted download which
    will cause problems like you have and are having?

    Just for info. It is a good practice to learn and get into using. It saves a lot of headaches. I don't like your inxi readouts because if you are running the Mate 14 edition like I am. Desktop should not show N/A. Mine showed up as Desktop;Mate.

    Some basic help links to get you started from scratch

    How to successfully burn or write an ISO-image to cd or dvd

    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ins...ll-cd-dvd.html

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

    Just a quick run through off of my laptop. I have to make a Live USB for my Motorcycle Shop Desktop computer so I will be busy.

    Code:
    harry@biker ~ $ cd /home/harry/Isos
    harry@biker ~/Isos $ ls
    android4.0rc2eeepc  AntiX  Slimpup  TinyCore  Unetbootin  Windows
    harry@biker ~/Isos $ cd AntiX
    harry@biker ~/Isos/AntiX $ ls
    386base  basex64  core386  corex64  full i386  fullx64
    harry@biker ~/Isos/AntiX $ cd 386base
    harry@biker ~/Isos/AntiX/386base $ ls
    antiX-13_386-base.iso  antiX-13_386-base.iso.md5  package-list-base
    harry@biker ~/Isos/AntiX/386base $ md5sum antiX-13_386-base.iso
    2c2046152d6b93f6486ad3c6989372b4  antiX-13_386-base.iso
    2c2046152d6b93f6486ad3c6989372b4 is the md5sum number for my antix 13 base iso file. I go into antiX-13_386-base.iso.md5 with my text editor. Because that file is just a text file I use pluma in Mint to open it. I copy and paste my md5sum under that to compare

    Code:
    2c2046152d6b93f6486ad3c6989372b4  antiX-13_386-base.iso
    2c2046152d6b93f6486ad3c6989372b4  antiX-13_386-base.iso
    everything matches. I can move on to unetbootin and install the iso to a pendrive. I feel comfortable that my downloaded iso is totally there and that no files were dropped during download.
    I do this because my ISP here is West Texas sux and drops my connection at peak hours like in between 12 noon and 10pm. I have had 12 drops using wget to download a 390MB file. So md5suming all downloads is a must for me.


    Edit: Oh crap

    Code:
    Intel Sandybridge Desktop
    SandyBridge is over my head. Sorry.http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=128235

    The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:MATE_mintMenu".

    Well it seems to be MATE mintdesktop 3.3.0

    Can I use synaptic to re install it?

    If yes, which package would it be?
