Exclamation Kubuntu S.O.S, computer has taken on a life of its own!


Right now, i am at least ATTEMPTING to run Kubuntu Feisty on my computer, but i have various different problems, and my Kubuntu has taken on a life of its own! It will uninstall and reinstall things i've installed/removed WITHOUT telling me it did until the second of which I try to install or remove anything! (Relation to human life: Just being a picky little sh-t and spitting out what it dosen't want) Also, it seems to have a problem with any program and outputs a code i cannot understand at all: (Human relation: Blurbs random gibberish)
Code:
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169
  Major opcode:  145
  Minor opcode:  3
  Resource id:  0x0
Failed to open device
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169
  Major opcode:  145
  Minor opcode:  3
  Resource id:  0x0
Failed to open device
Yea, i know, get it can't open some input device.
Then, on startup, my screen (the Fingerprint loadscreen) completely messes up the loading sequence to me by either locking up (rare) or just whiting out on something I cannot see. Only thing i can see, is crudely, four fingers (Thumb being a finger in this case.)
It's beginning to become a pain and a good exercise of the Ctrl+Alt+Bksp button combo of which we Ubuntu users have come to love. (Human relation: Banging your head on the wall until you finally pass out.)

Well, i'm trying hard to get my computer running just as flawless as possible. Those who reply, thank you VERY MUCH for paying your time to give my computer obedience schooling.(Roffle.)
Now, i'm gonna go rip the terminal piece by piece, limb by limb, until it will stop acting rebellious.

This isn't a real problem, though it can be annoying. If you want to get rid of it, you need to do a
Code:
kdesu kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf
If you don't have Wacom input devices, you can comment out the sections that look like this by putting a # in front of each line, like so:
Code:
#Section "InputDevice"
#  Driver "wacom"
#  Identifier "stylus"
#  option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
#  option "Type" "stylus"
#  option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"# Tablet PC ONLY
#EndSection
Then, make sure to do the same for this section at the bottom, but only comment out the 'stylus', 'cursor', and 'eraser' lines. Like so.
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
  Identifier "Default Layout"
  screen 0 "Default Screen" 0 0
  InputDevice "Generic Keyboard"
  InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
#  InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
#  InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
#  InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection
It's important to do that last part as well or your desktop won't start.

It's probably the Wacom entries since I get that too, but it could also be another invalid device in your xorg.conf.

Just a guess here, but have you tried using a different splash screen? Like the default Kubuntu one? You can change it in K -> System Settings -> Splash Screen.
