Hi all, first post ever here, new to Linux mint (Lisa 32bit no codecs download to cd and installed on new partition by windows 7 on C:) a few weeks now. Generally love it, no problems until today (except it could not detect my canon Lide 100 scanner). However, today while working with rdesktop and firefox running machine froze, I had to hold down power key to turn off and reboot, but when rebooted as normal the desktop screen has no menus, just my home and computer folders. Only way to get proper use I found out is to log in and change to Gnome Classic. Coincidentally, yesterday I discovered the settings for themes and had a play around with them, but problems only happened today. I hope there is a simple solution as I really had gotten used to and preferred the Gnome desktop.
Thanks for any help
