Desktop

Hello

I am having issues with my Linux OS. It is not allowing me open 'Change desktop background' when I right click on the desktop. I have tried to create another user to see if the problems keep happening. It does. Please could someone advise me on how I can sort this out?

thank you

Re: New to Linux

Hi,

Right, I have re-installed Linux Mint so it has not encrypted my hard drive. I will take a look at 'RickNS' post regarding safer encryption. Is there a manual or book someone can recommend that covers things in detail.

Thanks again for all your help.

Yaakov

Re: New to Linux

Hello,

The reason for encryption is because I work for a political party which requests encryption before one installs any canvass software to the laptop/device. What issues would this cause? Thanks
