OK i logged in when pressed window desktop manager on skype tab. Then opened decoration themes from my browser and then i opened folders of my drive. But i have no desktop icons or pic, no context menu. no task-bar. I tried to install plasma-desktop in terminal but it says that its been already installed.

Try pressing alt+shift+F12 to toggle desktop effects off. See if you get the panels back.

I had a similar issue temporarily until I toned down the effects on my desktop.

Linux Mint is a gateway distro. It can lead to experimentation with other, more "dangerous", distros. Use with caution. :P
