I have been facing problems in using kubuntu as I am new user of it. I was using ubuntu before and it was a nice experience but then I wanted to use kubuntu and formatted ubuntu to install kubuntu. I am using windows 7 at the moment. I have a problem that whenever I reboot, it just freezes on log off screen for a long time. After that I am forced to switch it off and restart it. But whenever I do it and go to kubuntu partition, it only shows me a flat screen full of dots. I even tried so many alternative ways to resolve the problem like reinstalling it in windows 7, uninstalling it from control panel but I was failed in doing so because it again give me certain errors. I really need your suggestions to resolve the issue. Please help me out, I would be grateful.
Issue using Kubuntu in Windows 7
It seems like you messed up the ubuntu files when you did the uninstallation. If your windows operating system is not affected, then I will suggest that you do the following:
When doing a dual boot between windows and ubuntu, it is always good to start with installing windows first before you install ubuntu, and therefore you will need to be sure that your windows is working properly.
Once you have verified that, you will need to remove all the ubuntu files, those that you are saying that they appear as dots remove them completely.
Done that, get a kubuntu installation CD, and then during the installation make sure that you install it on the same partition as the windows.
When you have done that restart the computer. You should be having both windows and kubuntu appear in the boot menu so that you will choose which OS to boot with.
