Hi. not too proficient but keen Mint 14 user. Hope I'm in the right area!!

On start-up, I get the following message. Obviously, I have stuffed up something.

Apart from fixing this, is there any way that I can go back to a completely default Mint setting, and start again with my settings - other minor problems too - without losing all my programs and other things too?

Thanks for any help.

One way to start back with the default settings is to create a new user account.

I came here to post the link Ram shared Smile If you enable showing of GTK bookmarks, you do need to have some GTK bookmarks Wink To create bookmarks, open Caja (file browser) and notice the Bookmarks menu. Go to a folder you would like rapid access to (like Documents, Pictures, etc.) and then select to add that as a bookmark.
