This may sound silly, but it worked for me.

Cut your computer completely off, unplug it for 15-20 seconds, then replug and reboot.

try a reinstall or go back to daryna or whatever worked before. I am using Daryna and am quite happy. Celena actually worked better on another thinkpad but I could not get it to load on this new thinkpad. I was that happy with Celena. and am happy with Daryna as such.
