I found the following after an Internet search:

I installed my system directly onto the hard drive, so I didn't use
VirtualBox.  In addition, it appears that bash was installed already.

Others than that, my installation was much the same as those two
examples.  I didn't add anything for things like a printer.

I still don't get the full default Mate desktop as there are no icons
for the computer, my home directory, or, for that matter, Trash.  i
remain baffled.
