Log out, then log back in but look on the options at the log in manager. Look for something saying something about mate or cinnanon select it and proceed to log in

Rebooted before post Dual Boot Vista and Linux

I went back out to see if there was a choice..saw a post on the internet about same thing. It says Linux Mint 15 but it is Ubunta when you get in. I've been learning hard on this Linux...blew me away. I done some crazy things learning but this takes the cake. I did something downloaded some software. I thought you could cross some of these OS Guess not how do I change it back.

Here is a helpful hint. Go to google images. Try and find a image by search term Mint 15

Shoot me a image link in the next post. You should have a terminal (2 of them , one is root terminal, the other a user terminal)
in mates Taskbar if that is what you are running.

mine
as a example. That is Mate. The 2 terminals are the square red and black box in the taskbar.

Ok, you are in Gnome 3 from the sound of it. Try using Fall Back mode. The Mate edition does not use Gnome at all which is what I am running.

Yep Gnome 3 Unity Desktop. Just to let you know. My Mint 14 is supported Longer than your Mint 15.

Quote:
V15 Olivia Ubuntu Raring Supported until January 2014.

14 Nadia Ubuntu Quantal Supported until April 2014.
So can you point me to the link you used to download mint from. The exact description is necessary for me to know what version of Mint 15
you installed since I used the Mate edition download link for Mint 14.
