Adding panel applet crashed cinnamon, how do I delete applet from fallback mode?


I had problems with Mint 16 and ended up with a corrupted system. I went back to Mint 13 Cinnamon with a fresh install yesterday.

Today I was adding some panel applets and one of them caused Cinnamon to crash leaving me in Fallback Mode. How do I uninstall/delete the applets from fallback mode?

I've been searching and can't find any information about how to do this.

Thanks.

I'm not in Cinnamon right now, but I'd look in
Code:
~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets
to find the offending applet, delete it (or perhaps move it to ~/Desktop temporarily), then restart cinnamon

Thanks! That is exactly what I needed. I knew which applet was the last one I added and deleting it set everything straight.
