Ubuntu 12.04 To 12.10 on Dell 1500

Decided up upgrade to Ubuntu 12.10 today. The process was quite uneventful. I simply went into synaptics updates and clicked the upgrade box and clicked submit. Answered yes, yes, yes, and in about an hour it was done. I told it to keep the old config so that my 3rd party drivers would work, then they did.

Only two things

1. I had to reinstall openssh-server so that I could run putty to remotely administer the computer:

ctrl–alt–t on your keyboard to open Terminal

sudo apt-get install openssh-server 

2. Deal with the GSTreamer Bug:

64 bit Ubuntu:

sudo mv /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so.bak

32 bit Ubuntu:

sudo mv /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so.bak

Wine did not upgrade during the process. However, when I started Wine, it recognized the new operating system and it updated itself.

That's it! Tonight we are going to treat ourselves to Aerosmith - Live in Japan 2002 concert.
