I have had for quite some time a machine running with the Ubuntu 9.04 server edition within my home network. This has been my in house file server for the stuff that I just dont fel like storing anywhere else in my network. Important photos, websites I have worked on, music files, etc. We all know that kind of thing.
I have been getting the update window for a couple of days now and at the top of the window it says Upgrade to 9.10……I have always avoided doing this because I find that when I do I end up with issues that takes a while to figure out with an eventual reformat and reinstall of the system. So I have not done it for a while. Well tonight I caved and upgraded the system and wouldnt you know it. As soon as it finished and I rebooted it, the desktop came back with the header and footer but the background and main desktop area was black. Nothing I did could fix it, I even removed gnome and reinstalled it. That didnt anything.
I know it has to be somewhere within the gnome file settings for the desktop setting, but where I dont know. Maybe someone would read this and be able to tell me. So i just installed KDE and am using KDE for the desktop when needed. I like KDE almost as much as gnome and its a good change.
Kinda wierd….if you get the upgrade button. Just say no!
