I am using LMDE 201303 64-bit edition (Cinnamon), and am experiencing some strange issues, and I am not quite sure what section to post this in.
First of all, sometimes when I turn on my PC and log into my account, the desktop icons are just missing, and right clicking on the desktop itself does not bring up any menu. This does does not happen every time, and when it does happen, rebooting fixes it.
The second issue I have seems to be related to using a multi-monitor configuration. I have an Nvidia GT 640 graphics card, and I have the 304.48 Nvidia drivers installed from Synaptic. I have three monitors plugged in, and this works great, except for one thing. When the computer locks, moving the mouse does not bring up the screen to enter my password and unlock. Instead, the leftmost screen turns blue, and the two right screens continue showing the black screensaver with the date and time in the upper corners.
I can blindly type my password and hit enter, which unlocks and everything comes back to normal, but it's really annoying to not have the proper unlock screen because it is very ugly.
Has anybody heard of either of these issues or know how to fix them? Thanks for any help!
