When I open my computer, the 'active window bar' at the top of a window does not install.

But if it works for another user, we don't need to reinstall anything.  It's a 
setting in your home folder, so...

First of all, a virtual terminal is a full-screen, text-mode interface - like 
DOS was, if you're familiar with that.  They're available at any time by 
pressing ctrl+alt+F? where F? is the buttons F1 through F6.  You can switch to 
those and then back to the GUI with ctrl+alt+F7.  In fact, when you start new 
sessions without closing the first instance, they start at ctrl+alt+F8 and go 
upward with each session.

In any case, I'll send you a personal email with step by step instructions to 
see if we can get this thing working.
