I post the contents of Home/Docs/.xsession-errors in the hope that someone can find out what is wrong with my system.

Mint 15 GUI errors

Postby DavidMcCrossan » Mon Sep 09, 2013 4:57 pm

For completeness I give the following info.

I did a clean install (3rd time) and found some slight confusion (to me at least!) in that I was able to select Cinnamon for the session but the greeter shows that I am in Mate.

I think the greeter lies like a hairy leg.

I did have Cinnamon but it now defaults to SAFE mode, which is usable if very slow.

Thank you all for help and guidance.
