    Anyone else having problems or a solution to this?

    Since you have given us such a wealth of information with which to diagnose your problem, I am going to try to be equally illuminating in my answer.

    The solution is for you to fix your system. Maybe try and work out what changed a few months ago and then reverse it.

    Hope this helps - no need to thank me.

    When this makes it into a stable release of Ubuntu, Linux will be ready for the masses.

    This reminds me of a funny AC post a while back:

    Don't tell everyone how AMAZING Debian is, please! I get this strange (probably very sick) psychological aversion to seeing things I feel are part of my ingroup assets become popular. As a Debian user of 7 or 8 years I get a little nervous at this. My choice of (vastly superior) operating system is what makes me feel different. Have a little mercy on a nerds elitist insecurities please! Im the guy who always discovered underground bands years ahead of everyone else, and when they finally became mainstream I wanted to disown them. My 'discovery' felt _violated_ by the hoards of unwashed sheep jumping on the wagon. 20 years as a 'geek' and now I hear that 'geek is chic'. Time to become a merchant banker. Stop following me around you horrible unoriginal soulless people!! Find something of your own. Debian is the best kept secret in the world to me right now, don't go around telling the oiks all about it or they'll hijack it, misrepresent it, and corrupt it by dragging it down to the lowest common denomiator like everything else they touch. Next thing I know some techno wannabe will be coming up to me in the street and saying "Hey, have you heard about this really awesome new operating system called Debian Linux!" ....Smack!!

    Windows is the choice people! Windows is the best, trust me. Debian is rubbish!Windows is the way, trust me!

    ok, you cant call something Kororaa and use gnome as a window manager. granted gororaa isnt really a good name, but still, that's just wrong.

Solutions are obvious if one only has the optical power to observe them over the horizon. -- K.A. Arsdall
