Re: No Task bar or left mouse

The mouse works in apps. and thanks Jason that config helps.  I think I have
a better grip on the problem now.  In all user profiles enlighten starts
using "startx" and the backgrong comes up. The thing I'm missing is the
panel and the file maneger does not start unless I use the center mouse to
open a menu and start file manager and then run panel. and even with that
log out does not work. I have to use ctr, alt,home to get out.
