Weird Graphic & other issues, new install LX3

Installed LX3 and it booted but was having weird graphic issues. The log-in screen graphic kept flashing up on the screen as I was looking through the menu. It wasn’t actually logging me out, it would just repeatedly flash what looked like the log-in screen off and on behind whatever was currently on the screen. Very annoying! I ran the updates since this was a fresh install and rebooted. After rebooting, I am not getting that flashing screen but all the icons from the bottom panel are missing except the keyboard, my Wacom tablet no longer works (it did on first boot and this is important for me) and the bootup sound was weird and crackling (sounded fine on first boot). Here is my system:

OK, nevermind. Moving on. Best of luck.

Hi @LNXlady,

sorry for late answer, we’re a small team and our main support guy was in surgery since few days until very recently…

I guess “moving on” means you switched to something else? Best of luck to you too, thanks :slight_smile:

I’m sorry to hear that and hope he has a speedy recovery. Yes, I can’t use the computer without the Wacom tablet so after a couple of days I had to install something else. It seemed like an odd problem. It’s been years since I had to do anything to get Wacoms to work with Linux. They usually work out of the box these days. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to reply.

Thanks for reporting, though it’s no more a problem for you, I’ll test to be sure Wacom tablets now work OOTB.

Sorry for not replying sooner. I had trouble understanding this issue (probably pain meds). Had to google Wacom tablets… I posted this issue on our OpenMandriva Cooker mailing list. We’ll see what pops up. Cooker is our development branch so developers are Cookers.

Yeah, I’m home and recovering and moving slowly. I’m very limited at present but do what I can when I can.

That’s good to know because I may be back at some point. I still have very fond memories of the original Mandriva. It was my distro of choice for a long time.
