How to revert back to 11.04?
 
I recently downloaded the upgrade to 11.10 it caused some issues. How would I go about reverting back to my older version of 11.04? i still have the install disk I used. I don't know if that will make a difference.

Hello,

Well what kind of issues are you having? Sorry to break it to you, but there is no official way to downgrade; Pretty much what I am saying is that you would have to completely redo Ubuntu. We can definitely assist you with the new issues that have arose though!

Cheers,

Josh

My screen had been blown up. All the sidebar and tool bar are bigger then before so they dont fit on the screen like they used to. Also anytime i open a new window i only get fourth of the page so its really large. Almost as if its spreading it across all four workspaces. It makes navigating extremely annoying. If i were to reinstall would i have to wipe my hard drive? if so how do i do that? at this point i think it would be alot easier to just reinstall 11.04

Sounds like you need to re-do your graphic drivers. Can you copy/paste the output of the following commands for me, using code tags?
Code:

lsmod
lspci -v

Cheers,

Josh

Edit - By the way, from what you described, your resolution is much higher now. Yes, that's what that is called ;)

ChannMan40 11-30-2011 12:54 PM

where should i paste them? whats a code tag? how would i go about re-doing my graphic drivers?

corp769 11-30-2011 12:58 PM

You would paste them in a reply in this thread...

And code tags are the following:
[ code]
[ /code]

Of course, take the spaces out in order for it to work. Code tags are made to have a lot better readability, and they also preserve formatting. Oh, and don't forget to run those commands as root.

ChannMan40 11-30-2011 01:02 PM

Code:

lsmod lspci -v
like this

corp769 11-30-2011 01:13 PM

No, copy/paste the output of those commands. Do you know how to run commands in linux?

I have a dual-boot system (Win7 plus Ubuntu).
Everytime I boot, I get a brief GRUB screen which gives me the option to boot earlier versions of Ubuntu, ie: if I was running 11.10, I could boot the earlier kernel of 11.04.
As I do not run 11.10 (because I hate the new Unity interface), I cannot say whether this would revert you back you a different version with graphics drivers also from the earlier version, but it's probably worth a try. It can't hurt, and may save you hours of frustrating configuration attempts, or hours of reinstallation.
If you do not see the GRUB screen at boot-time, you can get a GRUB editor (eg: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/qgrubedito...on-editor.html ). This will allow you to set the default boot kernel, which, in turn, may allow you to boot into a system with graphics drivers which work properly.

Hope this helps.

get gnome classic back
 
You can still install gnome fallback and get pretty close to the old desktop just pick gnome classic at login
