No, you were not, you have upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Beta. A beta version is known to have bugs. It makes only sense to install (or upgrade to) a beta when you want to be part of the testing process and want to either report bugs or fix them (or both). Seems that you have either found a bug in the system or the upgrade process. Now it is up to you to report that bug.

Anyways, the error-message indicates that you are missing a font, so it may happened that in the upgrade process a necessary package has been removed. Since I am not an Ubuntu user I don't know which package this could be.

anyway, thank you!

who is ubuntu user and can help me to check this question?

Try running as root
Code:

apt-get install xfonts-base
It appears you are missing the fixed font, which is required for X to run.

lee.colbert 04-05-2012 04:02 AM

Hi blue_k

xfonts-base is already the newest version.

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Here is another question.

When i run reboot command, there is a warning:

(process: 315): Pango-WARNING ** : failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', Script='latin'

(process: 315): Pango-WARNING ** : failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', Script='common'
