There was a bit of bashing the OP from other posters, some justified
(Mint-specific stuff), some unjustified.

I have the identical problem as the OP. No panel, no cashews, no
plasmoids on the desktop since upgrading from 4.11 to 4.12 one week ago.

My distro isn't Mint; I'm running Debian sid/jessie with experimental.
Since I run a lot of bleeding-edge versions of a lot of programs, I
expect problems like this to happen from time to time and have several
other DMs installed just in case. Today I'm using Enlightenment, at
least until I can fix KDE. I also have Xfce, Blackbox, Fluxbox and
Openbox, just in case some problems cross DMs.

Regarding the KDE "no panel, no cashews, no plasmoids" problem, I am
downgrading incrementally from 4.12 to 4.11 using the Synaptic package
manager, which (IIRC) should be available in Mint, but I haven't used
Mint since Lisa and my memory may be foggy there.
