If I shut down and later turn on my computer, my wallpaper is back to the initial wallpaper and all of the programs I pin to launcher are gone, likewise the ones that I unpin are back.

Has anyone else had this problem? I've googled around but couldn't quite find what I was looking for.

can you provide more information about your hardware and where and how you installed? edit your question with all the information you have. –  VRU Jan 8 '13 at 9:27
Did you do a full installation? You might be still running on the live CD or USB stick. –  hexafraction Jan 9 '13 at 12:27
