Hi to all,
I have just re-installed 2010.12 on my workstation and it is not working in a manner to which I am accustomed
On the first real boot, I had kde4 working. I then selected,in Synaptic, to read my last installation. I ran the updates and all seemed to be AOK.
However on reboot all I got was XXX XXX XXX at the top of the screen,which was white. no mouse at all that I could see.
I the dis a ctrl+backspce and selected a text screen.
I then did 'apt-get upgrade' which brought in a lot of kde stuff.
rebooted and login to an almost normal screen but no task bar.
On creating a task bar filled normally it appeared at the top of the screen.
Now some programs will not run--Firefox--, being one
The system has not displayed these things before and nothing has changed.
The system is:-- AMD 3core machine 4*500GB Sata drives in raid6 with a usb boot device. a Sata DVD + Nvidia video card.
Apart from a reinstall can anyone suggest what has gone wrong?
