Ok, googling Xubuntu it seems that it uses Xfce for de. Please post the output of the commands:
ls /home
and
sudo id tasli

as spiky suggested.

Ok, I successfully logged out from lisa and logged into tsali where when I bring up the terminal it reads tsali@tsali at the prompt. The desktop screen is totally different and everything. I can't seem to bring the windows down far enough to see the top part of them though. Anyway, Im going to grab a bite and Ill be back later guys. Thanks for all the help so far.

I had to put down dinner and ask this so I didn't get side tracked and forget. Now do you guys want me to run these codes from the tsali log in I'm assuming and not the lisa log in. Correct? I will continue once I'm all done with dinner. Thanks again guys.

I think the only things you need to run from now is
Code:
sudo apt-get update
type your password and let the command to finish running.
Then once is done type
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
and let it finish too.

If the display is incorrect look for the settings (Perhaps by right clicking anywhere on the desktop screen) and try to modify the display.

However you mentioned your desktop looks different from these of the lisa user. Maybe the computer has two different desktop manager. Look on the log in screen and see if you see a tab with options maybe look for Ubuntu desktop, or Gnome Classic or Xfce

Yes it does Tron. I remember seeing a dropdown on the log in screen where it offers xubuntu and something else like XUMB or some thing. I will have to look once I get back on the computer. Perhaps I changed it and didn't realize it.

One last thing Tron, once I get the new tsali one figured out I want to get rid of the lisa profile. Which is now logged into using other on the log in screen instead of Lisa but when you log into the other it still shows lisa in the top right corner. I just don't want that kind of stuff taking up anymore room then need be. Why have more than one screen log in when I will only be using one, right?

re 67: when you're absolutely(!) sure
Code:
sudo userdel -r lisa
Highly advise backing up first, just in case

Then if it does, select from there Xubuntu, then log in. if you are prompt with a pop up select the default options.

You can the same way log out and select a different graphical interface during the log in. The system however will remember the last one you used and if you dont select any it will automatically select the last one for you.

If you remove the user lisa make sure you copy the files into your new user, once you delete the user the files under that user are also delete.

Good luck to you.

Chrism: I have all my documents, pics, videos, etc backed up on my external hard drive so that stuff is safe. I just want to get the desktop similar to the one on the lisa one because I know how to navigate that one already instead of having to search for things like on the tsali profile. Thank you for the warning none the less.

Tron and everyone else: Thank you for your help and I will make sure to click yes on each and every post by you guys. Thanks again collectively. Now feel free to check out my other threads and offer your expertise on those subjects if you'd like. Thanks again all.

Tron or whomever is still following the thread: I logged out again and logged back in and changed the option in the dropdown and when it loaded it was still the same desktop. So now, does anyone want to help me with this issue?

Sorry to be a pain but I already know the desktop Im using and know how to navigate it fairly easily and it looks like the desktop under tsali has some new or hidden software available that I didn't see on the lisa desktop. Its not a huge deal but it would help with my linux learning and the more I learn the better I can not only help myself but possibly others in the future.

If I need to post it in a new thread I will but I figured it was part of the same subject so perhaps I didn't need to. Or if I need to reopen the problem I will. Whatever needs to happen. I don't want to be expelled for not following the rules.

Given the length of the thread and the fact you've already marked it solved, (personally) I'd open a new one.
Best thing is probably to contact the Mods via the Report button and ask them.

when you next post, you'll need to give details of the GUI in detail.
Note that you've got enough posts that you are now allowed to post screenshot attachments, which for GUI qns helps a lot

For posting cmds / output msgs from the cmd line, use code tags as described here https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...do=bbcode#code

You're doing good
