That's it!
I have a Ubunto screen when I start the computer. It then switches to 
blue with the four choices. I even tried Kubuntu (after I'd deleted 
everything) and it came up. Then I came back to Ubunto. This is insane. 
I have spent days and days on this foolishness. No system needs to be so 
convoluted. There's still enough Kubuntu trash around to start up the 
system and interfere with the Ubuntu login. I'll try the login shortcut. 
If that still hangs on a Kubuntu shard, I'm back to Windows and a 
predictable system that already does everything I need. If I succeed in 
the automatic login I'll continue, although frankly it's absurd to spend 
so much time on a system just to get minimum functionality.
