    My suggestion, to avoid all this hassle, is to stick to a version that worked for you from the start. Even if it's an older version, but it's still supported, stick to it, until the new version has most of its bugs patched.

    Do a fresh install of 12.04.1, it's LTS, you don't have to worry for several years. If everything works for you from the start, note what kernel you're using and refer to the guide I posted.

    I've summarized the guide on how to do it with my current install of Ubuntu Studio 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, but it's the same for any Ubuntu version with minor differences in packages.

    I actually meant "reinstall" as in installing what I had before I upgraded to 12.10, so yes, I'm going to do a fresh install of 12.04 LTS, unless it "all of the sudden" just gets better...

    I actually just downloaded 12.04.1 LTS

    Thanks for the help,

    Pierce

    Yea, I'm thinking if you were in Gnome and you upgraded to 12.10, which only has Unity, that is going to make a mess and confusion. Guess Gnome would be waiting for updated dependencies and other stuff which never come, leaving it in limbo.

    Still failing, I'd reinstall, perhaps to another partition if you can. You can use the existing /home and /swap. That way you might be able to track the progress of 12.10 on your machine and use that install as a plaything for tweaking and experimenting. You won't be in such a rush to fix 12.10 issues if you have a stable 12.04 LTS boot, too.
