after doing a
sudo apt-get --purge remove mate-panel mate-applets
sudo apt-get install mate-panel mate-applets
for trying to get rid of a trayicon issue on my system, the mate window manager seems to be not working anymore.
after login, i still get a gui, but only a terminal is running in there. also no panel and menus are available. for this terminal and any other application i'll start, exept chromium-browser (brings its own decoration), no window borders shown at all.
when i start mate-control-center, follwing errors shown in term
** (mate-control-center:2116): WARNING **: error raised: [libslab_get_mateconf_value: error getting /desktop/mate/applications/main-menu/lock-down/user_modifiable_apps] ** (mate-control-center:2116): WARNING **: error raised: [load_xbel_store: couldn't load bookmark file [NULL] ** (mate-control-center:2116): WARNING **: get_actions_list() - PROBLEM - Can't load gtk-theme-selector.desktop ** (mate-control-center:2116): WARNING **: get_actions_list() - PROBLEM - Can't load mate-cups-manager.desktop
temporary, a manual start of mate-panel & marco via console is my workaround to have the system used as good as normal. but i'd like to get the default windowmanager works as expected.
i don't know which additional information i should provide at this point.
hope, anyone can help me with this issue.
