The install went fine. It updated itself after the install. I rebooted when it Told me so and it came back up to the initial logon. I put in my user name and password and that went away and it appeared to be loading the desktop...the backround screen is there but no icons of any kind. When i hit control alt delete it told me that: at.spi-registryd.desktop is not responding. If I continued i might lose work. I let it sit for an hour...nothing. Any ideas? Also this is an older laptop an IBM (Thinkpad) A31 with 2 gigs of ram. The image is not shared with any other operating system...It was a fresh install.
