View Full Version : [SOLVED] desktop crashed after initial update

September 21st, 2009, 10:44 PM
I've just installed Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix on my new HP Mini 1116. The live session and the install went perfectly (except for the known bug with the system speakers). I switched to classic desktop, then ran a system update and, before rebooting, I also downloaded the codexes for Movie Player and Flashplugin.
When I rebooted, there was no desktop at all (besides the desktop background) and the only action I could perform was through right clicking. However, any windows I managed to open that way had no controls (i.e., no resize or close functions etc.). Looking at home/myname/desktop revealed nothing at all besides the new unnamed folder I'd just created.
Any ideas?

Update: this is actually a known bug that seems to have been pretty much solved. You can read up on it here:

I found a good price and was looking at getting one of these. Any other comments on how it works?
Wireless, the sound issue, speed?
Thanks, Geoff
