    After upgrade?

    Hello and can anyone point me in the right direction please?
    I had successfully installed version 7.10
    I had twinview working perfectly!!
    I then thought it a good idea to have both Gnome and KDE on board
    Ok so far
    Then I upgraded to version 8.04
    The twin-view doesnt appear correct
    The resolution is not right
    I think I would like to go back to my original installation
    that is version 7.10
    Is there an easy way to do this please???
    Do I have to do a freah install with the 7.10 CD ???
    Any advice will be very much appreciated???

    Re: After upgrade?

    Downgrades are explicitly not supported by Ubuntu.

    You probably don't need to reinstall, if you paste your xorg.conf here, ie the output from the following command:
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Then we'll probably be able to get it sorted.
    Every time you install Jaunty, a kitten........ wait sorry what year is this again?
    Please don't PM support questions, post a thread so that everyone can benefit

    Could you also post the specifications of your PC? Knowing them can help in fixing this problem.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.
