    Maybe the X-stack is not yet complete.
    On my Intel machine I am getting the same as ATi...an opening screen with top bars and an IBus message .."super + Space is now the default Hotkey" and then it goes to Ubiquity.

    Here is Intel and ATi (Radeon) towers .. same image.. saucy-desktop-i386 today's daily current:

    Come on man.. you scared me..

    Precise daily it's working very good. Stable and Fast.

    Again : Thank @kasanoob for the update.

    Question: When the stable version released (22th August), If I would not reinstall but stick with this daily iso instead , do I miss something ? any side effects ?

    Thanks

    Hmmm, that's not something I can answer with a simple yes or no. As you mentioned here Precise LTS dev and maintenance releases handle proposed updates different than later dev releases. I can't quite remember if that changed in Quantal or Raring?

    So, to be safe, I'd say an LTS maintenance release should be installed post-release if it's going to be used on a production machine or any machine where security is a huge issue. In my case I test these maintenance releases to check for problems that may have been created while upgrading the kernel and X-stack (also patches to grub-pc).

    Ultimately the past few dev cycles have introduced a great number of changes and it requires some serious thought to put all of the changes into context. Most recently the support cycle for "normal/interim" releases dropped from 18 months to 9 months, but before that the LTS desktop support increased to 5 years.

    That LTS support change included upgrading the kernel and X-stack along with any needed patches for grub-pc to support newer hardware. Of course the LTS will typically still have the older and more stable versions of apps unless some dev or maintainer went through the difficult exception process.

    Have I totally confused you yet?

    Completely

    So, If I want to be sure that I have a stable LTS release, I have to reinstall in 22th August, regardless if the daily iso seems stable and without problems. When I installed it, I disabled the proposed repositories, before upgrade the system and during installation I didn't tick the box of "installing updates during install.." . But I think it would be more safe to reinstall when the stable release comes out on 22th August. We will see until then

    EDIT:
    And for the first time after almost 2 years, Fn+F4 works !!! (suspend). This kernel is good !
