    This thread explicitly, even by title alone, deals only with Precise classic (no effects), whereas your link says:



    That is beyond the scope of this thread!

    I'm trying to be very precise (no pun intended) about what is being installed or uninstalled to prevent total breakage of Ubuntu

    But I'm using Oneiric right now, due to a specific bug in Precise, so let me log into Precise and I'll be very specific about why your recommendation is boneheaded
    Hmmm...perhaps my understanding of the purpose of this forum is somewhat flawed?

    I thought it was at least partially to give MUTUAL advice and assistance?

    I have no idea what your responsibilities are, and it's none of my business anyway.

    I did not recommend anything at all, I merely related what I had done and why, and how I did it, with a link to the information I used to do it

    I have had no problems at all of any description since. All I would like to know is why you think it will cause problems as obviously you have a lot of experience. I would prefer facts to unsubstantiated opinions.

    I don't much care "whose" thread it is. Information is information and the matter is relevant.

    I do not under any circumstances wish to cause anybody any problems with their systems, and I would also prefer to avoid any on mine, although It's not a big deal, if anything did occur I would simply reinstall.

    I also do not much care to be called boneheaded, ( which you have once again done), without even being given a reason for it.

    That is why I would much appreciate an explanation of your comments.

    There is always a way, but it might not be the best way, or your way!

    @ traditionalist:

    So I'm in Precise and I run the recommended command:

    Code:
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get remove unity unity-2d-places unity-2d unity-2d-panel unity-2d-spread unity-asset-pool unity-services unity-lens-files unity-lens-music unity-lens-applications gir1.2-unity-4.0 unity-common indicator-sound indicator-power indicator-appmenu libindicator6 indicator-application evolution-indicator indicator-datetime indicator-messages libnux-1.0-0 nuxtools
    [sudo] password for lance: 
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Virtual packages like 'gir1.2-unity-4.0' can't be removed
    E: Unable to locate package libindicator6
    E: Unable to locate package libnux-1.0-0
    E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libnux-1.0-0'
    E: Unable to locate package nuxtools
    What's up with that

    And what does it have to do with this thread?

    I don't OWN this thread, but I will point out when I think people make bad recommendations.

    I test what I recommend repeatedly before posting it

    That is what I get as well now. However, when unity was installed it removed quite a bit of stuff.

    It has to do with this thread insofar as it solved various problems for me which were similar to the problems the lady in question is having. You are saying it is boneheaded, I would simply like to know why you think so.

    I do not know "What's up" that is why I am asking.

    It is a simple question, either answer it or forget it.

    My answer:

    What you're recommending doesn't work.

    Why should I figure out why?

    I did not recommend anything.I pointed out what I had done. You are telling me that it is boneheaded but you can't figure out why?

    If you can't figure it out how do you know it is boneheaded?

    Never mind, it's really not worth all the discussion. I 'll just avoid you in future.

    Have a nice day.

    I don't care why it's borked .......... it just is, and IMHO it doesn't belong here

    I edited my OP a bit with a link in step #1 to show how to log out and log back in.

    Thank you very much, that goes a long way to explaining why my graphics problems disappeared after doing this;

    http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package...base/nux-tools

    Obviously the command line is flawed.
