    Holy fan hitting flotsam, Batman!

    Here we go...

    Argh... wants to remove ubuntu-desktop, think I'll pass 'till tomorrow.

    edit: looks like libatk-adaptor is the offending package.
    So sudo apt-get upgrade allows 134 pkg. and holds that.
    finishes fine, no removals, now in synaptic it is another story.

    Same here. Even extreme-tux-racer and Brutal Chess (I use those games to test older machines) is getting upgraded.!

    Ok.. that update blew away my desktop. I only have terminal from boot. I did recovery from GRUB. No go.

    I was using GDM, not Unity-greeter.

    Any ideas

    Downgrade libxfont1 to the most recent version from precise. Fixed it for me.

    How can I do that from terminal?
    Do you have sudo code?
    ?

    Replace amd64 with i386 if you're running 32 bit.

    Code:
    wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libx/libxfont/libxfont1_1.4.4-1_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libxfont1_1.4.4-1_amd64.deb
    If you have to ask for "sudo code", perhaps you shouldn't be running a pre-alpha version of Ubuntu... unless your style of learning is trial by fire

    Yes there is something wrong with that new version of the xfont library.

    As I said previously in another forum .. I have 9 machines here .. so trial by fire is not a problem. I know it can be done in synaptic but I can't get synaptic if I do not have a desktop

    Thanks again, it worked great.!

    btw .. I'm using a KVM so I like doing those codes transfers manually.

    Well, a bunch of us testers (since Dapper Drake beta) aren't that familiar with "downgrading" a specific package.

    I'm trying the update now - we'll see how it goes. Meanwhile copied the "downgrade" cli into an exec.
