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.
