          I got this today. Is it the other log?
          Opened in Office Writer. It seems to be different. Don't know 
how I got split screen to compare.
Found, but not opened, or not found? Booted to what? You cannot get any 
of Dolphin or Kate or Midnight Commander or Kommander or Firefox or 
Konqueror to open it?

    I am Emailing with Xfce. The working Log I sent is from Xfce. I will 
try to get a log from the non loading Kubuntu.
    It comes up on the Password page drop down as Plasma. I can enter a 
password and it accepts it and go to a blank screen.
If some one could wzalk me throgh deleting and renameing partitions I 
would delete the version 15.04 of Kubuntu and install 14.xx for now and 
try again when the new 15.xx come out in a month or two. I hope what I 
have sent now will give you a clue as to what I should do. If yo need 
anything else please let me know . I think I have figure out how to send 
these files.
