Thank you, Jerry!

Due to other issues I encountered after posting the error log i.e. I clicked on File Folder from the panel and all the icons on the panel disappeared; nothing happens whenever I clicked on any desktop icon, I decided to just re-install LL again. I encountered a few issues after that, but was able to find answers in the forum and solved the problem. I visited the link you gave though to try to understand what was wrong and see how to solve it... Thanks!

If you're new to Linux, it's not unusual to try a few installs at first to iron out any kinks, it helps with learning too.
