Desk top configuration
Obviously a 'noobie' I am running linux 17.1 32 bit on a new motherboard with 8 gigs of ram. I can't seem to configure a desktop. I want to place the items in my task bar on the desk top, but can find any way to configure it. I have zero item on my desktop no matter what I try.The version I am running says it is Mint, if that helps.
