Pruning the forum database.
Yea, uncle might be right. I might need to dust off a cd. I thank you for your help, but I think something went a little wrong with the upgrade. (And yes, I tried to reinstall all things mentioned)I don't like giving up, but sometimes things happen. Anything too deep in the system and I am at a loss. Due to my user level I think I am just going to backup and give a fresh install a try. Thank you kind sirs for the tips. I will be back...
The shared-mime-info package was uninstalled because of unknown reason. Install it and everything is OK.
