I'm having multiple issues after updating to Jaunty Beta. I'm having difficulty launching ANY applications. Instead of fixing this, I'd rather revert to Intrepid until the final release of Jaunty comes out next month. I can still access terminal. Is there anything I can enter to revert to Intrepid? I don't have another computer with me to download Intrepid again. Any help would be appreciated!

The only way to revert to a previous version is to do a clean install. It sounds like you got bit by the python bug mentioned here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1107854). The way to repair the problem is to open a terminal and type:


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

That appears to have done the trick! Thank you much.
