So, I upgraded in place from Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10 on the 22nd during the wee hours. Most everything seemed OK. I saw how things got moved around in the menus of ClassicMenu-Indicator with the addition of "Sundry" and "Utilities".
After some sleep I started going about normal stuff, even using the built-in backup instead of what I'd been using and was pleased with the ease and simplicity for a simpleton like me.
Then I saw a few disturbing things. When I opened, closed, and re-opened several programs some of their windows did not get put where I had placed them.
The worst example by far was Domination (a Risk-like, if you haven't heard of it). The battle, move after battle, and the tactical move windows all would not re-open where I had moved them - they all creeped upward towards the title bar where they eventually stopped. This is ungood. No, actually; it's pretty fucking bad, even if some might dismiss it as a bagatelle. But hey, it's just a stupid game, right?
After some of the daily surfing routine of news, mail, and a bit of writing, I decided it was time for some Civ V, which I hadn't played for most of a week.
Big wrong. Seems 13.10 wiped CrossOver. I could not re-install it. There was a missing dependency, lib32asound2 (which I later found required lib32asound).
I'll leave out a day's worth of reading and fiddling with stuff.
There's a new CrossOver out - 12.5.1 - that is supposed to address the i386 multi-arch stuff (there was a recent change, from lib32foo-i386 to lib32foo:i386) but I can't afford it right now.
So right now I either wait until I can buy the new version (Wine itself is out - every time I manage to get something working I also manage to screw it up.) or I re-install Ubuntu 13.04.
