I have just installed Mint on a new PC build. I ran all the updates and upon restart letters are missing in the desktop and menus. I've attached a screenprint but have no idea why it is like this. If you look along the top you will see the date and time is missing along with part of my login name and at the bottom the Menu is totally missing. Within the menu all the applications have randomly missing letters.
I've done a quick google and some people are saying is an Nvidia update but I don't know how to fix this. Can anyone help?
On two different machines. I don't know what it is exactly, but it would appear the proprietary drivers do not work well with Gnome 3. (I am unsure about KDE, Xfce etc...) I am using the bog standard open source drivers for one machine and the built-in Intel graphics in the i5 processor for the other. Both work OK.
