[Solved] LMDE 4 Menu bar is missing after restarting computer

Post by JohnChild »

Hello,

I have been using LMDE 4 for about 5 days. I shutdown my computer at lunch and when I started it again after lunch, it appears that I have no menu tab or any icons along the bottom of the screen. I did run my mouse to the bottom hoping it would pop up but no such luck. I did a search and it seems that most posts mention the menu may be hidden. I do not recall doing any settings changes to cause to to be hidden. Any help would be great.

John

Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T--then copy/paste the following:

Code: Select all

gsettings reset-recursively org.cinnamon
Press enter.

Assuming you have not changed the desktop environment from Cinnamon that should get you back in the saddle
