Many thanks

I switched and it was a great improvement - The mouse and keyboard worked
and the items on my desk top appeared. It appeared that I had Internet
connection and so i downloaded updates but the update appeared to fail. I
can open pictures and film clips but mozilla and Thunderbird will not
open.... Any further suggestions??

I am most grateful to you



Glad to hear that you saw an improvement but I can't think of anything else
to try. Perhaps someone else on the list will have a suggestion.

 work this time.

 problems are caused by Ubuntu 17.10 defaulting to a Wayland
 At the log
 in screen, try switching it to Ubuntu on Xorg (see attached
