Toshiba Satellite 1135 Laptop…older machine:
Intel 2.0GHz Mobile Celeron CPU
Intel 82852/855GM Graphics. Kernel module is i915,intelfb.
Older machine, so that is the primary reason Ubuntu-Mate 32bit was selected…to create a working, viable box using older/obsolete laptop.
After Ubuntu-mate clean install CD 16.04, Welcome and Software Boutique work as expected.
After Upgrade 16.04 to latest auto-updates, Welcome & Software Boutique give blank screens.
After Ubuntu-mate clean install CD 18.04, Welcome and Software Boutique give blank screens.
I’m on 18.04 at this point, so not going to downgrade back to 16.04.
So far, this issue appears to be isolated to Welcome and Software Boutique.
Uninstalled: snap remove ubuntu-mate-welcome
Reinstalled: snap install ubuntu-mate-welcome --classic
Don’t really care so much about Welcome, but would appreciate being able to use Software Boutique.
Other than this issue, Ubuntu-mate works very well on Toshiba Satellite 1135, and has fully extended it’s useful life for my purposes.
While I’ve found some posts on the forums with folks reporting this issue, I have not seen any solutions posted that work (or sometimes even apply) to this situation. Since it appears this is not really an isolated instance, can anyone point me to a link to a FAQ or something about this issue?
As a workaround, Is there an older version (as in the version in 16.04 Install CD) that can be installed to replace the latest version?
Is there a fix (or one in the works) for the latest version?
