    Angry Annoying stuff

    I click on Chrome icon or audacity icon, or something similar.
    Program runs but it is outside my control. It goes to panel, and clicking on doesn't help.
    Only thing I can do is to use command line to kill these processes..
    ....
    I run chrome, and a baloo file process runs. I didn't want such a process to run.
    It is like I can't do what I want, but some spy needs to do its work, steal my and my computer's time and energy. and files.
    ....

    And sometimes I click on application icon. It jumps and jumps and jumps and never runs,
    or it runs but I can't see it. Or it goes to the panel, and sits there.
    ......
    I see volume icon on the panel, which is supposed to be kmix.
    Moving mouse over it, or clicking on it doesn;t help. Only thing I can do is right click,
    and if I'm lucky I see some options. One of these options is: restore. I click on it. Nothing happens.
    ....
    After bringing a few things to their defaults, some stuff appeared on the panel.
    One of them was muon update. So I was supposed to run it to bring security to applications, right?
    What happens: everything is frozen and I have to shut down the computer by force, by disconnecting its electric.
    And if I use a new computer I can;t even do it, because there is an unreachablebattery inside
    . Computer would then run outside my control, and maybe explode,
    and I have nothing to do except put it in a place where explosion won't do any harm.

    Thread moved to Ubuntu, Linux and OS Chat a more appropriate sub-forum.

    If you would like help with these issues please start a thread for each issue in the proper forum and cut back on the melodrama.

    Re: Annoying stuff

    All these problems may be related, so after a quick look,
    an expert can guess what may be wrong.
    ....
    I prefer holistic approach. If we have multiple health problems, and
    if we visit a different doctor for each symptom and get a separate drug for each
    this won't cure the disease. It would mean more chemicals.
    .....
    If everything is opensource, what are we scared of.

    .................
    I expect a response like this: remove this file, and restart the computer, or chmod 777 this file,
    and see what happens.

    I do believe you are most likely right on the issues being related, so you do not need to create a different thread for each issue, my apologies! If you do actually want help with fixes these issues I will move the thread back to a support forum.

    Re: Annoying stuff

    What do the system log files show?
    I don't understand much of what is being said, but could be a hardware issue.
