I'm trying to install Linux mint 12 lxde on a oldish pc.
1.6 Ghz Pentium 4, Nvidia Geforce2 MX/MX400, Gigabyte SIS645 (according to cpu-z) and an ethernet internet connection.
The first time I booted into Linux mint, I got into the command prompt strangely. The second time I got into the 'desktop/GUI interface' (strange?) but it's missing the panels, and it wasn't opening any windows by clicking on the desktop icons.
Any ideas as to what I can try?
