As you'll soon notice, I'm very new to Linux. To be honest, this is the first distro I've installed so far so my jargon might be a little windowsish. After a few days of usage, I ran into a couple of problems and you'd help me on either one of them (preferably all:P). Here goes (in chronological order of occurrence):
1.) While watching .flv videos in Firefox, e.g. YouTube, the audio output seemed to be around 30%.
2.) After I tried adding Skype to "start-up tasks", via Sessions, two things occurred: a.) I could no longer start Sessions. It just loaded the tag on the taskbar called "Starting Sessions" which disappeared after some time, without anything else happening. b) The Main Manu itself got buggy. All the buttons, save for "Shut Down" worked fine, but it simply refused to disappear after I performed tasks with it. No matter how often I pressed on the "start button" it kept staying there. Only the "show desktop"-button worked.
3.) After I got frustrated playing with the Main Manu-bar, I stupidly enough clicked on "Remove from Panel" and whoosh, never found a way to get it back. My problem now is that I can't do anything at all. I don't know how to access the programs (i.e. where they are stored, how to execute them under Linux, etc), which makes all this rather annoying.
Any help would be great, so thanks in advance!
