Gnome Desktop Troubles - lost menu starters on the panel (applications system)
Posted on 2009-05-20
I use a KVM switch to get between my XP system and my Linux box. When I switch to Linux, my mouse gets screwed up, bouncing all around and hitting things randomly. Last night, one of the results after its random activity was that the menus that normally appear on the top panel on my Desktop have disappeared (Applications, System, etc) - and with it my access to many gui applications, games etc.
Does anyone know what actually happened and how I can get them back without reinstalling?
