The best is yet to come…

leave a comment »

Lets do it :-D

Terminal: sudo update-manager -d&

And… back up and running :-)

Downloading the files took 30-45mins, the configuration and updating about an hour.

Reboot was quick and then straight back in to 12.04 after login.

Next up was 20 seconds of scary white screen with black dots… then Tada!

Both screens clear to show my desktop.

Both monitor screens now have a launch bar, whereas before there was only one.

Sweet :-)
