Thanks.It was the new KDE minicd version, but I wound up formatting and re-installing the gnome version of Mint. Less problems I think. the new KDE Mint had done this a couple time on fresh re-installs, and I wasn't doing anything that should have been a problem, so I couldn't figure why this was happening. Maybe there are still a few kinks with it.
This is off topic but:
I would like to run KDE as an alternate desktop. Is this hard to accomplish starting from Mint Gnome Version? Any idea if it is possible to have different customized Gnome desktops. As an example Ubuntu Studio Desktop (Gnome), Standard Mint (Gnome) and then maybe a KDE desktop?
