View Full Version : [UbuntuGnome] 14.04 Grief

December 17th, 2014, 02:47 AM
At the end of August 2014,I was happily working with Ubuntu 12.04, then I hit the File Manager Upgrade button. I've had nothing but trouble since. Here is a list of my current problems:

* The mouse cursor hangs up at the edge of the screen, and, sometimes it just disappears.

* Sometimes applications fail to display their contents ... they "open" but only show the little pointer indicating being open. Libre Office Writer is especially troublesome.

* Desktop files fail often to appear after starting the computer or restarting.

I will apreciate help eliminating these poblems, once that is done, I can work on recovering my files from the Back In Time backup disk.

Hi Andy

You been around since 2007, you have troubleshooting knowledge. What have you tried?

What desktop were you running before the upgrade?

It seems to me, that you have problems with the graphics - poor cooperation between the graphics driver and the graphics chip. But it might be something else.

Please specify your computer

- Brand name and model
- RAM (size)
- graphics chip/card
- wifi chip/card

and also as asked by ibjsb4, what desktop environment were you running with 12.04 LTS , and what desktop environment are you running now with 14.04 LTS?

It will be easier to help, when we know these things. Otherwise we can only guess.
