This question already has an answer here:
I upgraded my ubuntu to 12.04 through software center and it did not go well. The problem is I'm using this machine after a long time that I don't remember the previous version no (definitely greater than 10.0)
Machine: Asus A8ESeries
The font colors changed to white, it did not detect ext hard drives. I did an upgrade from terminal and now I get the following problems:
- The text font color on all windows changed to white
- The track pad did not work (Which I fixed using this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1971196)
- Network menu not showing wireless option itself. My output for "dmesg | grep iwl" and rfkill list all are blank
- External hard disk not detecting. I need to back up my files before upgrading again.
- unity one launcher not working.
- no menus at the top right corner and many more failures.
I really need to back up my files which is the most important task. Also get my wireless working. Please kindly help.
