    12.04 upgrade. desktop stuff doesn't load

    upgraded to 12.04 and it refuses to load in the newer versions, but in the oldest version, it boots and operates properly (so far as i can tell).
    once i''m done here, i'll reboot and check the versions that don'e work and the one that does.

    i am now trying to upgrade and this is what happened:

    me@me:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done

    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages will be upgraded:
    firefox firefox-branding firefox-globalmenu firefox-gnome-support
    firefox-locale-en xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

    well, i'm confusd about all this...

    after apt-get upgrading, and then the package manager did its thing too, i loaded 12.04 successfully... strange that it would do this.

    i do still appreciate everyone's time.
