If you can't change the auto-login option to "off" this might be helpful:
(below is output from re-installing 3.12.0-3-generic but, both of them got the error.)
The screen was blue and the icons were all hosed.
I tried re-installing both the 3 and 4 kernels and realized nothing but a clean install would fix it.Code:

I opened up this thread and apparently I'm not the only one:
Everything is back running perfectly in Gnome Flashback with effects, Compiz the cube and the whole nine yards. :)
I noticed that gnome-desktop did get installed by installing gnome this time around. This was after I installed gnome-session-flashback.
You guys didn't bomb on the 3.12.0-4-generic kernel because you've created your own custom kernel right? That's way above my pay grade. ;)
Things are working fairly well here. I occasionally have an app just freeze causing me to either logout and log back in (or reboot) which is inconvenient, but somewhat expected at this point in the game :)
In fact I used Trusty to produce the Quantal, Raring, and Saucy updates to this thread:
I quickly learned to "save" frequently due to those app freezes. I imagine that's on the kernel level because the moue and keyboard are still functional.
I'd love to know how we can REISUB now though :confused:
I'm not seeing any freezing of anything currently. I realize we are way early but I've installed twice and this is the best so far. :)
