This question already has an answer here:
I am using Lubuntu 14.04.2
I recently updated the xserver-xorg-video-intel-lts-utopic driver from:
Now I have randomly missing letters in the desktop icon text and other text in the GUI. I tried reloading the driver from Synaptic but it comes back periodically. The only solution I have found (albeit temporary) is to logout and log back in.
This was part of an update package that has gone awry.
I don't have the proprietary intel drivers installed, nor do I want to.
How do I revert back to the previous driver (2:2.99.914~1~exp1ubuntu4.5~trusty1) where I didn't have this issue?
The command line solution that mchid gave me below should work but I get an error message as seen below.
The solution provided does not have anything to do with my current issue as far as I can tell.
