Could you post the exact sequence of commands that you used? Specifically, how did you use update-rc.d?

comment The ubuntu stuck on boot screen, terminal works but GUI doesn't
Try running this command in the terminal: "grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log" and post the output here. It will display any error information in the log file of the X server.

comment My ATI graphics card gets very hot and Ubuntu freezes
What model is it? Is it normally supposed to have a fan? Either way, I would consider installing some fans in the case itself. It really helps keep the temperature down. Try to get air flowing around the graphics card.

comment Is my computer compatible with Ubuntu 12.10 64-bits?
Of course, you can usually find out somehow if your CPU is 64-bit compatible or not. My point is simply that, if you are the least bit uncertain, there is absolutely no harm in trying the 64-bit version.

comment Is there an easy way to set up a home FTP server?
What exactly do you mean by "finding an app"? If you're trying to use software center, that won't work. Run the command above in a terminal.

comment Is there an easy way to set up a home FTP server?
Yes, it should work just fine. I've never used Windows 8, but I don't see any reason why it would be a problem.

comment Fresh install 12.04 from 11.04 can't log in
I mean that if there is no content in your home directory, your account will be treated like it was just created. This should make it possible to login, and then salvage what files you actually need. If you do not copy any hidden files (.*) from your old home directory, it's very unlikely that it will fail.

What do you mean by "cannot log in"? Do you get an "incorrect password" error? Please provide more details.

Yes. Any USB mouse I've tried works perfectly, including scrolling and back/forward buttons.
