    Re: Log Out

    I tried GDM just before the whole thing went bang, made no difference, just tried log out again with this fresh install but still no good, now I just get a black screen for a few minutes then the PC shuts down ??? one of lifes little mysteries I guess. It's not important, as far as it goes, just something doesn't work correctly so it's like a sore tooth LOL.
    BTW. I'm just about to do the QQ upgrade, that fix you posted, I assume I run that after the upgrade/update before I reboot. ??

    Yes .. you can do it that way. Apparently it has been fixed. I just blocked it in synaptic and then updated an upgraded Quantal system. I am just about to do another upgrade on a Dell Dimension 3100.

    I'll be back to explain what I did but the conventional solution posted by pressurman was the best workaround..

    Haven't looked at that at the ppa but the current one is still buggered up quite a bit. I got black screen from the Dell upgrade and now I have to manually enter that downgrade code

    Edit:

    Ok .. I'm back in the saddle again .. now uprgading to the 3.4 .x-x kernel. So thats 4 machines now with the Quantal conversion.

    Re: Log Out

    How, where and when did you enter the downgrade code, when mine went bang I just got a black screen and no way of entering anything,
    BTW , re; the point of this post, log out still doesn't do anything.

    When I rebooted I just held down the shift-key and then I got the GRUB menu and was able to choose the recovery option. Were you able to get the GRUB menu on your black-screen previously (or had you tried that)?

    From there you can drop to root (or choose resume as which I did and it bumped me to a terminal prompt).[I had to print out the code because the Dell is across the room at another workstation] , gives me an excuse to use my printer

    Re: Log Out

    When everything went bang, I could get into the recovery mode but I don't know what the codes are to downgrade, sure would appreciate it if you could let me know what they are, no doubt they will come in handy.
    Those Xorg ppa's in my previous post, I only added the precise ppa's, to my sources.list and they seemed to be updated with the upgrade, bit handy. Had another game with adding ppa's to my sources.list to install SIR and it worked fine...damn Something new...
