Hi geordiejohn and welcome to the forum,

When you get to the login screen and select the user, before typing in your password click on Sessions at the bottom and select the desktop you want to boot into. Then type in your password and press Enter or click on Ok.
If you're already on a desktop you can select logout instead of reboot and do the same thing a lot faster.

I am about to install my 4th version of Ultimate Edition - my first was 1.7 gamers i think.
I have 2 questions:

How can I keep all my tweaks and settings and program downloads/updates when I install 2.7, or will I have to tweak again.

When I update my files, will it update me to the next edition eg if I update 2.5, will it then be 2.7. Or is it only the kernel that gets updated.

I am really impressed with Ultimate Edition. Thank you. When my friends see they go whaor - where did you get that!!!
I am looking forward to seeing the progress made regarding the use of midi and Looking forward to a middle of the range desktop publisher with templates etc as I am unable to get Pageplus to install in Wine and dont have the time to make my own.

But well done for an excellent OS.

Unfortunately you will need to do a fresh install of 2.7. There have been too many changes on the Lucid release.
From what I understand there are plans to make it possible to upgrade Ultimate Edition to Ultimate Edition but right now doing a fresh install is the safest way to go.

Usually you can have a separate /home so everything is there with almost all of your setting but some apps. are in 2.7 that were not in 2.5 and vise versa, so the settings would be there for some apps. that don't exist, and not be there for some apps. that do exist.

Hope that answers some of your questions.
;)

Help!!!

I am trying out the differnt login options, gnome, kde, and have tried openbox. But I cannot find the login screen settings manager to revert back to gnome.

I have looked in the gnome control center in the menu but it will not allow me to unlock the options to change the login options.
Have tried in the forum but maybe my wording is wrong and cannot find a solution.

So I am stuck in openbox (maybe it should be called closed-box, as I cant get out)

Thanks

Necessity is the mother of invention.

My last post might copy where you find yourself - stuck in openbox and not knowing how to open a login screen manager - (I had configured mine this way)
In KDE and Gnome, this was easy to find but not in Openbox.

However - what is not seen (which I didn't) is that when you log in, drag your cursor to the bottom of the screen. There will be some activity, one of which will say "Session". Click on this to reconfigure or undo or change options back to KDE/Gnome.

So easy once found but feeling like areal dunce/noob because I cannot the way out of "closedbox". :lol:

since last night the computer started loading the desktop wallpaper i setup, then it switches to the ultimate ED wallpapper 15-20 seconds later and no icons.btw i'm running xfce session.

the no icons issue i seemed to have fixed with the use of ubuntu Tweak, but the desktop wallpaper is still a problem(well i got desktop wall paper i want to load but it apears that the machine switches between 2 diff desktop settings or environments, reason i say this is the desktop pops up how i set it, then bout 15-20 seconds later new icons and my custom ones in the first desktop to apear, do not appear in the config that seems to load second, which appears to be the setup ubuntu tweak controls.).

like said i use xfce, and not have clue how to disable or what to disable exactly, but my feeling is that maybe it loads xfce settings first then loads gnome settings second. as to where i can find them , i'm at loss?(most tutorials i could find that sounded like they help me where in reference to older versions , which i read in other places things got changed but they did not have th info as pertains to lucid.
