[SOLVED] Menu items stick together and text field lost its border

Postby zerox » Thu Nov 09, 2017 1:38 am

Hi, I'm new to linux mint and last night I tried to install several pdf viewers then this problem appeared (I can't remember when the problem appear, maybe after I install bookworm ? I) anyway, the problem is the space between menu items are gone, the scrollbar also gone too and at the login screen the password field doesn't show up or doesn't show its content but I able to input the password and hit enter to login. I've tried to remove all the pdf viewers that I installed, still not working

This is on my terminal

This is on my files

Please help me guys, thank you :)

You didn't say how you installed them. You need to pay attention to what is being installed/upgraded. From the pics it looks like you probably upgraded to a newer version of Gtk so all your themes are broken.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.

Hooray ! thank you for the clue, I checked my update list and realized that the package libgtk-3-0 and libgtk-3-common had been updated last night, so I downgrade it to the previous version 3.18.9-1ubuntu3.3 But when I boot in it said cinnamon session not found so I have to reinstall it using:

Code: Select all

apt-get install --reinstall cinnamon

After I reboot my machine, everything work great !
Thank you so much !!!! :D
