Well I used to synaptic package manager to try to uninstall chromium and I'm not sure what I did. A lot of the icons changed. Now when I try to go to the synaptic package manager I get this error:

Failed to execute child process "synaptic-launcher" (No such file or directory)

Some of the menus look very different as well. Feeling like a total noob! Thanks for your time.

From the top panel, open and run the Update Manager to apply all updates, then try to run Synaptic again.

In UberStudent, Synaptic has the function to update your system stripped out, because it is an inherently risky way to to do updates. The Update Manager does updates in a discriminate manner designed for stability.

I did try that before posting here. But the update manager is gone from the panel as well. The application finder is gone from the applications menu and I'm not sure how else to look for it.

Sounds like you've been tinkering around a whole, whole lot (which is, of course, fine), and that a sort of re-set is in order. Please do the following:

Open a terminal and run:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall uberstudent-xfce-default-settings-enduser
synaptic-launcher is contained in that essential package.

When done, restore the default panel configuration by running
Code:
uberstudentpanelchanger
