mintmenu Crashing?

Postby xenorecor on Sun Jan 10, 2010 9:19 pm

Hello all, first post here.

I'm pretty new to Linux, my computer tech. teacher recommended it because of the relatively smaller community then windows so I decided to give Linux another try. Anyways, right now I have no mintmenu!! I went away for a while and my screen went into power saving mode and when I got back the menu was gone and all i could use was terminal to start up Firefox. If anyone has any ideas that would be great!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi!

Got a similar problem. Restarting the X server ( <ctrl>+<alt>+<backspace> ) brought back my menu. Hope it helps.

By the way this post solves the same problem.
