I would guess that, as per the instructions provided, these are
available from the menu. ust can't get the menu working...

New user gets a completely different interface. XFCE and components
don't seem to launch, nor do they seem to be available. Not only is
there no menu, there's no panel from which to launch the menu, and the
panel won't start from the command line.

Let me know. It would be nice to have a usable computer again.

It's rather frustrating that any time there is an update for something
X-related, it seems that if you're going to make the upgrade, you need
to be ready to have your computer unusable for 3-10 days...
