View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.10 - Much Ado About Little, with Much Hassle

November 1st, 2009, 03:30 PM
Have used Ubuntu 9.4 exclusively for about 6 months and just upgraded with the CD. What a freakin' nightmare. The upgrade went well till near the end when some packages did not load, and so my perfectly tweaked system died and I had to do a clean install. Half a day and all night later I have 9.10 going smooth, but what a waste of time. Although I see a few minor things, I'm straining to figure out what supposedly advanced between 9.4 and 9.10.

Moral of the story, it seems much ado about little ado with mega ado hassle.

Also, for those with Canon 2600 printers, you are in for a slog, since the driver no longer works in 9.10. Go to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=775368&page=2 for the solution. Can't there be some simple utility to detect and download a list of properly maintained drives? This is a huge paper cut.
