Initial Conditions

Lenovo ThinkPad X200T (purchased late 2009) with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) installed as per: Installing Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) on a ThinkPad X200. Modifications as described on that page: Trackpoint, GPS, screenrotation and touchscreen recalibration. Additional modifications are numerous, and mostly forgotten.


Updating to 10.04 via update-manager.


Installer tells me that 3rd party package distributions are now disabled, but I should be able to re-enable them later if I need. More worrisome, many software are no longer supported by Cannonical, so I fear that I will lose functionality. In particular, I note that bluetooth, wacom-tools, and wine will be uninstalled, but those may be 3rd party.


Upgrade completes successfully and boots fine. It seems a little slower, but I don't know for sure. So far, all I've needed to do is tweak Gnome a little bit (Move the buttons as at [[1]], and reset my terminal background
