No not a new Dan Brown book but a problem with my latest update of 10.04.
I have two systems working 10.04 one on a partitioned HDD Desktop and one on
an external HDD connected to my laptop.
Both systems loaded via Wubi, the desktop does not always load cleanly but
after a couple of soft reboot manages OK.
Now I have a further problem with the desktop. A couple of days ago the
normal Ubuntu update manager message appeared. When I maximised it the page
was blank. I thought nothing of it and loaded from the menu Update Manager
and updated the recommended updates. After rebooting I noticed that a number
of the Icons in the menus had gone missing. For instance under Graphics the
icon is there for Picasa and Open Office .org Drawing, but not Document
viewer and F-Spot viewer.
When I opened Chrome the little tab icons for closing and adding another tab
(x and +) were replaced by a red square. Firefox is not affected and whilst
I have not tried every other piece of software. This problem does not seem
to affect any other programs. The vid driver is Nvidia accelerated graphics
driver (version current)
Whilst I have some knowledge of using Terminal I have mostly used the easy
way of adding program and trouble shooting. The computer also has Win 7 and
this works perfectly so probably not a hardware issue.
