Xfce desktop corruption. [SOLVED - VBox prob]

Postby markfilipak on Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:28 pm

SOLVED:
I'm no longer a VirtualBox user.

Mint 14 (64) + Xfce was very flaky. Mint 13 (64) + Mate wouldn't install. I installed VMware Player into WinXP3 and created a Mint 14 (64) + Xfce virtual machine - went smooth, no problems, seems stable. END

VirtualBox 4.2.10
Host: WinXP3, 32-bit
Guest: Linux Mint 14, 64-bit + Xfce 4.10

I'm dead in the water.
Got any ideas what's wrong?
Thanks - Mark.

Symptoms:
  • No window titlebars.
  • Windows have southeast sizer only.
  • No window borders.
  • No wallpaper.
