Yes on all.
'Course, right now I'm trying to recover it (again). Had 12.04
installed, then went to remove Unity. THen upon rebooting & trying to
login, it says graphics not supported, and I then go to the list of
choices, and I can't do anything. No mouse, nothing. Can't choose low
graphics mode, or reconfigure.
Switch to tty1, run startx. I went in to Synaptic to reinstall Unity,
and Gnome. Hope that brings it back to life....
