I am trying to install Linux Mint on a new SSD. I copied the Linux Mint Xfce installation app to a USB drive and rebooted. I can't execute the apps on the Linux Mint desktop - Installation icon, Firefox, etc. Single clicking will select the icon. Double clicking does nothing. Right clicking does not load a properties window.
I have used Ubuntu in the past with no problems. I want to use a lighter weight version of Linux.
