troubleshooting kevin

I upgraded Kevin ,our 2 year old Dell Desktop. We usually don’t use the debian system installed in there so I haven’t really upgraded it for a while now. So now I did an apt-get upgrade and just my luck that it crashes after logging in.

So I was trying to troubleshoot all the errors on the. .xsession logs but it turns out I was just wasting my time. What I did to fix it is just mv the .config and everything worked. I have a brand new spanking Gnome Unity desktop.

Update: 3-20-12
I just fixed my Dual head setup today. Compiz is still not running though. What I did is put “Virtual” setting on the screen section of my xorg.conf and restarted gdm.

I then tried grandr to rearrange the displays. Bingo!
