I tried to update Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04LTS. I have several issues and had to go back to Ubuntu 9.10. First issue is the mouse has a drag time even when I click to speed it up. Second issue is sometimes the keyboard will freeze up and the last letter I type will repeat for about 20 times as if the key gets stuck then the whole system freezes up and I have to reboot. The third issue is I have DSL and the 10.04 doesn't seem to want me on the internet--In firefox I get server not found and finding software app just sits idle like it is searching for the internet. Please help. I love the 9.10. I have an E-machine t5212 and 320 gb (replaced the original 200gb after a virus shut down windows xp hard drive). The video card is Radeon Xpress 200. Intel Pentium D processor and 1024mb DDR2. I am new to Ubuntu but I have used it for about a year and love it.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

I think all of the issues in one questions is not ideal here. Would it be possible to separate the issues into distinct questions? – txwikinger Aug 6 '10 at 18:30
So 9.10 works for you though? Also, did you try doing a full install of 10.04 instead of an upgrade? Upgrading tends to cause issues.. – zkriesse Aug 6 '10 at 19:07
Could it be a driver issue? As in a driver that works in 9.10 but has a bug in 10.04. – ssanj Aug 7 '10 at 2:33

I always do a clean install... always!

I have a few things for you though before clicking "close" or "back"

There may be a conflicting package on your system or something causing bloat, get rid of them by typing:

sudo apt-get autoremove

Which will get rid of libs and packages which are not needed/conflicting/causing bloat.

What about a test-drive with the Live-CD (without an installation) to check if the hardware is recognized and evey thing work well? How did you change back to ubuntu 9.10 - i am just interested.
