I have been trying to get a little program called runbasic http://www.runbasic.com/
up and running
for some reason it will not start. I read on the RB user forum that one user solved his problem by uninstalling MYSQL
so via Synaptic I uninstalled and re-booted
[START LOOP HERE]
Now I have a strange LOGIN screen its a white rectangle in the middle of an all black screen
with "Welcome to 1 .office (office being the name of my computer)
I enter my usual login name and password and the next screen is all black with a "popup"
you are attempting to run "drak3d" which requires administrative privileges but more information is needed in order to do so.
Authenticating as "laurie"
I enter my password and the screen remains all black with another popup for 3D Desktop Effects
and 2 options for either No 3D desktop effects or Compiz Fusion click Cancel or Ok
both Cancel and Ok take me to yet another popup stating I should reboot if you have changed the video driver for all other settings
log out then back in again.Cancel or Ok
either button takes me back to
GOTO [START LOOP HERE]
a "safe mode" login takes me to a shell
any ideas how to recover appreciated
Interesting I can see all my samba shares on office from my XP machine so not sure what the login is for
