The upgrade from 10 to 12 was disaster though. The root of the problem is that /home is on a separate Hard Disk and all the stuff in /home is therefore preserved. Something in there in a config file doesnt work.
the Desktop it as you see it
-ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
recedes every command line execution ( but skype is OK!)
-desktop shortcuts don't work
-terminal command line stuff doesnt work
-no desktop background ( not that important)
Ive posted on the LM forums but no suggestions /solutions so far so I need to try something different . So ive got a different HD and with LXDE mint on it , so I'll see whta happens there. ive also got a seprate machine with gentoo installed, but id forgotten what ahassle gentoo can be to get everything set up ( Im sure its fine when its done, but i haven got the time at the moment)
