Hi Aere,

I have great confidence in your analysis of the problem, and I'm sure
that you have this problem. But I cannot reproduce it in my computer,
instead I can tell people with similar computer to mine, that Lubuntu
still works.

I'm very sorry that this update stops the Ubuntu 14.xx family operating
systems from working in your computer. Is it important that someone else
can confirm the bug? In that case we must ask people to test it and if
applicable, mark 'affects me too' at Launchpad.

And if I understand correctly, it is possible to test by running Lubuntu
14.10 live, so no installed system will be destroyed by the test.


When it is confirmed that this fix will work to avoid the bug, and if
such actions are possible:

@ Jack,

Can you try to stop this update

from xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.99.910-0ubuntu1
to xorg-video-intel 2:2.99.910-0ubuntu1.2

in LXLE? At least stop it from getting into the 12.04 version!

@ Walter,

Can you try to reverse the versions from
xorg-video-intel 2:2.99.910-0ubuntu1.2), so it goes back to using
xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.99.910-0ubuntu1
in Lubuntu 14.04.x?

Best regards
