Angry Loosing Gnome 3 settings after re-boot - Linuxmint 12

Hello all

I just did a complete install of Linuxmint 12 on the weekend. I really like Gmome 3, with one small exception. Whenever I re-boot the machine, I seem to loose my settings, theme, fonts etc. I have been searching for a solution using Google, but have yet to come across a solution.

Any ideas, folks ?

I am using Linux Mint 12 and now my default desktop is missing the top and bottom panels etc. How do I do a factory reset to restore the default desktop?

Just click on the asterisk icon at the right of the box & choose whichever desktop you want.
You have the choice of Ubuntu, Ubuntu classic or mate (experimental & still a bit buggy)
