I believe that I am a Cinnamon flavoured user.
At the top of the screen, left hand edge, their should be drop down lists for Applications and Places and at the extreme right hand side of the screen there should be a drop down list headed by the name of the user and containing a number of functions.
I have one machine that has these labels displayed, (this machine was loaded after LMDE collapsed after an update and brought about the update packages) and I have two machines with missing labels.(These are 201109 vintage.)
Can any body point me to where the defect lies please?
