Mint Maya 13: No desktop just mouse cursor after logging

Postby neilerua on Wed Aug 08, 2012 8:20 am

Hi everyone, I'm a new french user of Mint Maya 13 and i'm enjoy with it

I've installed it 5 days ago, and configured it to my whishes ... everything was right untill this morning.

Today, i've an annoying problem:

After the logging screen (despite it was disactivated in the prefs), the desktop doesn't display (only a blackscreen).
I've got the default mouse cursor too wich is working (it was customized in prefs still). But there are no icon, launcher, task-bar. I can't do anything !

Before the last reboot I've installed "Mysql-Client"," Mysql-server" and dependences ," gambas2", and "notepad++" with "Wine".

I've tried some command line in the console as:
dpkg-reconfigure kdm
install xserver-xorg ...

But still have problem

Maybe it's a KDE problem or something like that.
I don't know if there is a link but I need help please !

Some Ideas ?

Welcome to Mint!

It's possible your disk is full.

When you get the log in screen, choose Console login

Then log in with user name and password.

Type df -h

That will tell you if one of your disks or partitions is full.

If all seems okay, type startx

Let us know what happens.

PS: You should NEVER disable login screen. It's not just for security, but for reasons like this :wink:

Just for clarity, I think you mean synaptic--no 's'. There is a program called synaptics but it's got to do with touchpads. You mean the package installer, right?

Really bad idea, having two applications with almost identical names.
