Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot
Hi! , MAFoElffen,
I formatted the 10.10/11.10 partition and installed from the 11.10 USB I had made.
I'm thinking with how it is and the problems its having- a fresh, clean, new install would be a lot less work and frustration.
How quick and painless it was surprised me, once I had worked out that the instruction to use the "Partition Menu", meant what you get when the "Change" button is Clicked.
Less than 20 minutes later I had a running 11.10 Unity screen - and the WiFi worked at once, too!!
However it then took Update Manager more than 40 minutes to install 235 packages.
At first things seemed to be AOK with the default Video driver- presumably nvidia-current, 280.13 - but after entering the blacklists, on several restarts, it hung on the "Checking battery state" line.
Thanks to your very extensive help and tutorials, I knew how to deal with that. After:
I ran the nvidia bin.run file with an '-f' option, and it downloaded and installed the latest version of 290.10.
sudo nvidia-installer --uninstall
sudo apt-get remove -purge nvidia*
Now everything - well, nearly everything - seems to be working correctly; just a few things to sort out.
Edit: The next bit is "Solved".
The worst is that the 'startup-manager' is not to be found either in UIbuntu Software Centre or with:
So I am unable to reset the default in the grub menu.
root@alan-MS-7616:~# apt-get install startup-manager
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package startup-manager
Is there another way to do so ??
Edit: I found Synaptic manager hidden in a menu, and there I found Startup Manger as: "startupmanager", so I now have it installed.
Once again my most appreciative thanks for all you have done for me, and are still doing for others.

Reason: 'Solved' note added,

They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
