Re: Help, seem to have broken my desktop

No nvidia or ati, just a bog standard onboard intel 915 graphics, so can't see it being a driver issue. I was messing around with desktop effects and compiz settings, but don't recall exactly when this happened or what i'd been doing before

Re: Unable to log into user account
