Acer Aspire One Linpus with no menu
So in a rush I decided to download the zipped VLC package from the Acer website and what a big mistake that was. After the install and reboot all I have is the XFCE wallpaper and, if I don't click or press any buttons before I select, the search bar.
I did enable right-click menus but now that doesn't work. Ctrl+Alt+F2 doesn't work any more either. I am fortunate enough to use Firefox as a pseudo file managers, being able to search through the root and such but I have no idea how to restore the menu or get into anything, even start the terminal. Oh and did I mention I now have 4 workspaces and can't navigate between them?
How I wish I wasn't in a rush and installed the codecs like a proper UNIX user, but in my haste to go out I downloaded files from Acer and regretting it since.
Any ideas on how to, at the very least, bring up the terminal or do a system restore? I can do a full re-install, as I've got nothing on there I want to keep, but there must be a way to fix my muppetry, isn't there?
