MATE desktop vanished after software update

Postby 0000ff » Sat Mar 02, 2013 10:30 am

Hello people,
I am using Linux Mint Debian Mate 64 Bit. After installing some OS updates and restart, MATE desktop vanished and instead some other kind of desktop (maybe Cinnamon with wrong settings) appeared. The new desktop is very slow and seems to be optimised for touch pads, because it doesn't have a menu on the bottom left. How can I change that?

open a terminal (use alt f2, type in mate-terminal or press ctrl alt T) type in terminal:

Code: Select all

mate-panel --reset


Code: Select all

sudo mate-panel --reset

see if that brings back your panel
