    Can't install the backported xorg to 12.04.2

    Hello,

    I found that quantat xorg stack is available in updates. I was using the xorg edgers ppa until now because I needed an updated driver for my laptop (intel 915 chipset). So I decided to purge the xorg edgers ppa and then install kernel and xorg from quantal using the ubuntu updates repository.

    I had no problem about the kernel but I'm struggling with the xorg stack. I tried to install xorg-xserver-lts-quantal package but ended with a broken X display. In fact ubuntu-desktop (and many other packages) is removed and I suppose this is my problem.

    So I would like to know if there a special procedure to follow to switch to quantal xorg ? I'm interested to know if anyone installed the xorg backport fine ?

    Thanks

    I solved the problem running this command after refreshing packages:
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-quantal libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-quantal

    But this uninstalled wine and playonlinux; Do you know a way to install them with quantal xorg ?

    Ok I think there is definately a mess between wine and the renamed xorg packages. I created a dummy wine package to be able to install playonlinux. Playonlinux can download wine runtime directly so it's a good workaround for me. Anyway I'm interested to know if anyone install wine with quantal xorg successfully.

    ,

    On a 32 bit install it should be fine, 64 bit is another story.

    Managed to get it in but took a bit experimenting & editing some control files. Can't say it's worth the effort, (over an hour) & whether all correct.
    screen 1 some of the lts including the i386 package highlighted
    screen 2 wine, ect. (showing upgradeable because I repacked those 3 with altered control files

    Wait till they square up 64 bit (when no idea

    The 12.04.1 to 12.04.2 with lts X upgrade is possible but as seen you need to remove a lot of packages first then put most if not all back before logging out.

    Did it the other day as a test, worked out ok (re-installing ubuntu-desktop was the final test that all was ok before logging out.

    Can't imagine there is any intention for users to do this so we'll see how your report goes...
