My ubuntu, after multiple updates, being broken during maverick development, various stuff installed, messing with grub, etc, etc, has taken quite some damage. More specifically:
when it starts, it wants to check
/for errors. Then it says that it has errors, and it wants me to choose if I want to abort, ignore, or try to fix. It can't fix them, but if I choose to ignore, it just starts.
Transmission occupies the whole screen (above the panels), and I can't minimize it, even whith alt+space + minimize (or unmaximize). The only way to bring my panels back is to close the Transmission window.
When I start the pc, the bottom panel is empty, and I need to put the panel items back every time.
Now I realize that it has taken some serious damage, and I want to know how can I freshen it up, without losing all my installed apps and configuration files.
