Any risk if I update the apps in Ubuntu Software Center? I remember someone who reported an update that broke is installation. I am just done configuring everyrhing and do not wanna have to do it again.

Alright I got all logged in, and I wanted to install open office. After having done difficulties, I read that I had to remove libreoffice, so I did using synaptic. I try to install open office, then my system ui, all the window bars. Everything disappears. I try a reboot, and now I'm stuck in a screen that says: ubuntu (some version number) tf700 login: I've tried every login and pass I could think of. Any suggestions?

EDIT: ok I figured out the password, but Im still stuck at a black terminal screen. No UI or anything, just says:

Ubuntu@tf700:~$ _

Underscore is flashing



Also with the release of the sdk of the ubuntu for tablet, anything new we can expect?

try "startx" and see if that gets you into unity.

I'm trying to install it again, had to remove only to find out I can't run. The lag spikes are really really tough to get through though

Are you using Unity? Why not using another desktop environment? I use xfce and it runs super smooth and fast (I even use compiz). There are a few lightweight DE out there (lxde, xfce, awesome, kde...)
