Hi
I have a seperate home partition and it was not mounted as home after the install of Lucid.
All the normal stuff was working well in the 'home' that the install created at that point.

I found out that I could mount my old home partition permanently using Storage Device Manager and it all seemed to go very smoothly after rebooting.
That is...until I realised that none of the apps that i opened had a top window bar and none of them could be re-sized, moved or closed. Even using the Terminal there was no way to close it.

I checked to see if I missed a step and found out that I should chown user to my new home.
I followed those instructions but it did not help.

Please can you guide me, I am at a loss as to what to do apart from another install and that will be my last resort.

Thanks
Andy
