Thanks for mentioning that Tod, it makes it even less worth bothering with.
I managed to get both Ubuntu's working in multi-boot scenario now (not easy when they are both clones of each other I can tell you, it doesn't half confuse grub
). Anyway this is what my desktop looks like (the left half anyway, I have to reduce the file size somehow, or I can't post it):
Not pretty is it
I could post the crash logs as well, but they are so huge I doubt you would want to read them (I don't want to read them! ).
There are 4 anyway, python2.7, gtk-pixbuf 32bit and 64 bit (no idea why both it is a 64 bit system) and software-centre.
@Brahim - Hope you have better luck with it than I did
Edit. Here is something strange. I logged in with the guest account and the desktop was normal. I then logged out and in again with my own account and a lot of the corruption had gone away. I still have no wallpaper (and can't set any whichever I choose) but everything else seems to be ok, no crash reports this time.
