I did a clean install is Ubuntu 18.10 LTS. I have been using Ubuntu studio since it came out so I am not that familiar with the new installation of Ubuntu. since the other is based on XFCE desktop.

My installation is on a new nSATA and an new HDD for /home. I have been installing the apps I want and migrating their respective config files to /home. I have rebooted a couple dozen times in the last day and then set claws and backintime to start on boot. The next power on the apps started as should however the mouse buttons do not work and nothing other than the tab and enter keys work. Basically the system is frozen.

I can login and choose cinnamon instead of Ubuntu every thing is functional.

Please help
