Hi,

I am running AntiX 2.6.32.1 and GNOME 2.30.2 on an IBM Thinkpad A20m.
I installed AntiX on this computer a few months ago and everything was working great.
I am a user with relatively little Linux experience, so please consider this in your response.
I have recently used the Synaptics package manager to upgrade all packages.
Since then, I have been running into a number of problems:
1- I have lost the icon on the top right that allows to select to close the session or shut down the computer. How do I get this back? In the system menu, I still have at the bottom the choice to close the session, but not to shut down the computer. If I log in as root, I can see the command to shut down the computer in the systems menu, but still, no icon at the top right to do this.
2- I cannot have access to any USB devices unless I am logged in as root.
3- When my daughter logs into her session, she does not have sound anymore. Sound is working all right in my session.
4- When I update the packages, I get an error message about the halevt package. Error 100. I see that other users have run into problems with this package during the last few months, but I have to admit that I do not understand what to do about this.
5- Final question: I can't see anymore how to add or remove users from the system...

Thanks for your help.

Hi trudeal,
Looking at your post, I think that maybe you ran into trouble updating via Synaptic.

I log into the terminal as root and then type in
apt-get update

and then type in
apt-get dist-upgrade

I'm not sure how to fix your other issue except with a fresh install...Someone more knowledgeable than me may be able to help you there.

Dave

Firstly remove halevt with apt-get purge halevt.

In a terminal type apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

Post the message here.

In a root terminal, type muser to correct the sound issue. You need to use the recover option (can't remember exactly as I removed the app)

Thanks everyone.
I enjoyed using AntiX for these past few months.
A really nice build.
But perhaps not user-friendly enough for inexperienced users such as myself.
I just installed Xubuntu and will see if I have more success.
Cheers
