My Linux Mint installation seemed to work fine an hour ago, then I switched into Windows 7 which is installed on the same machine. When I restarted back into Mint, I got the following errors and can't continue:
Could not update ICEauthority file, problem with the configuration server.
/usr/lib/mateconfig/mateconfig-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256.
The panel encountered a problem loading OAFIDD:Mate_mintMenu (do you want to delete the file?)
And something about caja settings as well.
After I click OK on all those, and say no to deleting the file I can see the desktop, with no icons and the applications menu is not working. How do I fix this?
