I am having an issue when logging in to Xubuntu 18.04. Everything boots fine, but when I actually log in, the background from LightDM stays on the screen and there is nothing else, no panels, right-clicking does not even bring up a menu.
I know that everything is there because I can use my keyboard shortcuts to open a terminal, and though it still doesn't show, the cursor changes to an I-beam where the terminal opens. I can get everything back to 'normal' by hitting Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then Ctrl+Alt+F7, even the windows I opened with the shortcuts are all there.
This happens every time I log in, even if I only logged out. I'm still learning to use Linux and I'm not really sure where to look. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
