I have been having problems using desktops other than Unity with Ubuntu 13.10 .
I tried KDE it worked but I didnt really like it that much - and on removing it, crashed Ub 13.10.
It took a full restore to get it back and working (though I am quite a beginner, I admit)
One desktop was more than a desktop and overwrote Ubuntu and had to do full re-install over that one too
Are there alternate desktops that play well with Ubuntu 13.10 ?
-any help is greatly appreciated
(this is for a laptop,hp pav. dv6, intel i3)
