    Recent Gnome Update Problems :S


    Hi guys,

    Well when I thought it was all over, Gnome decided to have itself a little update. When I booted up, the gnome splash was no longer my custom splash. Of course, I could always put it back to normal. But that isn't the problem.

    95% of the time when I start up Ubuntu, my toolbars don't appear. I log out and in and they are there, but then It crashes. This only happened after the Gnome update. Sometimes, my desktop doesn't appear either. I've had to make a shortcut to terminal and run everything from there. No menus, also mean that I am constantly using Alt+Tab to switch windows, which can get a little annoying...

    I'm going to try to update and upgrade my system, to see if there are any fixes on Gnome's new update.

    If you want to know Aptitude's code for system update/upgrade here it is... If i can remember correctly:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    delete .gconf folder from your Home folder. if it doesn't work, delete .gconfd folder too.

    * your all customization will be lost on deleting those folders.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    As mentioned in the coffee lounge, I've switched to Ubuntu x64 and no longer have any problems....at all. The only problems that are still lurking around is the video playback on linux. It sometimes doesn't appear at all, or when you move it, or open a menu over it, it blanks until you drag it around a bit. Although this may have something to do with that fact that I have a Intel 'Extreme' built in graphics card that steals video RAM from my system RAM. ugh! - I planned on getting ATI Radeon 3000 something something but i've heard ATI has a few problems with Linux... any knowledge of this?
