I ditched the disc I had received in the mail and opted for the direct download from this site ... burned an ISO image, etc. After install, the disc ejected and I booted from the hard drive. Once Mint had loaded, I was left looking at the same plain desktop as before ... no menus, icons, no login screen, etc. The control + alt + backspace function worked to refresh but showed no changes.
The mouse pointer disappears to the right and to the bottom of the screen, almost as if there is more to see but the screen is not formatted correctly to my laptop monitor. I really am not sure here.

What is the md5checksum?
