Another Linux problem that turned out to be much simpler than I thought:
After an update and reboot, the bottom panel (my only panel) on Linux Mint was gone. My desktop had also changed. After a lot of hassle the solution was to choose ”MATE” at boot up (at the login splash screen) instead of ”last session” (which I had assumed was MATE). I have no idea why ”last session” didn’t work to begin with.
I’m starting to think I’m not cut out for Linux.
