Hey folks - I've installed a fresh copy of Mint 14 (no upgrade - just blew away what was there and installed fresh). I then performed the requisite apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade. Next step was to install the nvidia driver(s) (nvidia-current-updates). Rebooted after each step, logged in, no problem.
The problem comes after installing dropbox. I installed the regular "dropbox" meta package from the mint repo (that installed a whole bunch of stuff). Now, when I log in, I get the "Welcome to Linux Mint" window and a mouse cursor, but nothing else. No panel, no menu. I have to log out with C-A-D.
I've even gone so far as to redo the whole process the same way, with the same result.
Help? Is there any other info I should be providing that will help with debugging this? Thanks in advance.
