darktable lighttable interface
I have struggled with this for 4 days. Darktable 2.2.5 will not open the lightroom as it normally has. There is no Darktable(2.2.5) logo in the upper left corner and the left and right panels will not automatically open. I have removed the program several ways, ppa, uninstall, purged, autoremoved, and reinstalled. Nothing works. Here is what I don't understand and know how to correct. If If I manually go into the file system as root to usr/bin/darktable and click on darktable the interface comes up correctly. By that I mean lighttable looks and functions as it has for the last 3 yrs. What am I doing wrong?
Even though I have used linux mint cinnamon and darktable for 3yrs, I am still a novice. Thanks in advance.

You mention only one way of opening the program, and you say it works that way. What other way are using to open the program that doesn't work?

I'm just opening it by app icon. The program functions fine. Darkroom is fine. The panels are locked in place. Lighttable portion isn't.
I guess it's my OCD kicking in. The GUI has changed and I can't figure out what I did to cause it.

Solved. Just got a error message that the database lock file in the .config file contained a pid whatever that means. Deleted the db and lock files and everything is ok. First time that error had appeared. Thanks for your reply Richard.
