    Now straight to the problem(s):

    Well actually I need to explain something first.

    As far as I can tell, it all started after I did a deja-dup recovery of some documents from the old Mint 14, deja-dup ask me if want to recover to original folder,(Y) I somehow suspect this to be the cause.

    1. Not able to add shortcut directly to desktop from Menu, instead the shortcut is added in the desktop folder, and from there I am able to drag it to the desktop.

    I can't remember the rest right now so that'll be it for now.

    Thanks,



    Wrenchman

    Sorry for the inconvenience, after I turned on the cpu today, it was all well and working.

    I have no idea, maybe it was the reboot, maybe an update!
