    Trusty kernel 3.12.0-4-generic got errors during installation

    I got kernel 3.12.0-4-generic in an update today and it got some errors that I can't remember off hand. But now everything looks weird.
    All the icons are just red x's and the cairo dock icons are blue question marks. Even though I had only 2 kernels installed it was telling me to apt-get autoremove the 3.12.0-3-generic files.

    I even tried sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.12.0-3 linux-headers-3.12.0-3-generic linux-image-3.12.0-3-generic linux-image-extra-3.12.0-3-generic and then
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.12.0-3 linux-headers-3.12.0-3-generic linux-image-3.12.0-3-generic linux-image-extra-3.12.0-3-generic.
    That seemed to go well so I purged and then readded the 3.12.0-4-generic kernel and got the same errors.
    Of course I had to install linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic along with the 4 3.12.0-4-generic files. But, my background is just a solid blue and the icons are all messed up.

    Any one else have this issue?

    PS. Ironically the cube still rotates. I've been in Flashback the whole time.

    There was a known error with 3.8 - 3.9 so maybe that was also trying to upgrade at same time as 4.10 (3.12.0-4-generic #10
    In any event 4.10 is fine here & 3.8 can be removed

    I booted into the 3.12.0-3 kernel and the same thing.
    So I purged and re-installed it and this is the error that it was getting.

    Code:

    I got the same problem with icons.
    I reinstalled ubuntu 14.04 and after sudo apt-get upgrade, got the same error message. This time I got to work,
    sudo gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache

    after searching the internet, chmod the file, installing some package, the command above finally worked.

    Re: Trusty kernel 3.12.0-4-generic got errors during installation

    I gave up and had to perforn a clean install to fix it. I got an ISO that was created at 7 something this morning. it came with 3.12.0-4-generic kernel installed and I installed Nvidia driver 331.20.

    The extra repository was already commented out which was sweet but I still had to enable partners. I'm in Gnome Flashback with effects, compiz and got the cube rotating. So, for now everything is looking pretty sweet.
    After installation there was just one file in the updates.

    Lol! It will be a lot better! Suspend worked from the gnome applet-indicator-complete but, I think it did before. Haven't tried anything else there yet.
