G'day Dean and welcomeI guess I will just uninstall what I have and try reinstalling it since I have no idea what else to do.
No need, Dean - you have come to a haven where everybody here has, sometime or another, been through what you are going throughWell, this is embarrassing.
My Bad - I lost a couple of lines during the transition.Mate I am going to carve off most of your last paragraph from 2 Posts up and start you a fresh Thread, likely called
Help Installing Programs in Ubuntu 19.10 GNOME
I forgot to ask if this is during the boot process or after. :\Well, this is embarrassing. Each of the last ten times I have booted up the computer the squares appeared. This time they are gone. I have no idea why. I didn't do anything different. I guess I need to find a tutorial on how to open a file and get it to run.
Ah! Thanks for the clarification. In that case my guess would be that something is "hanging" during boot. I know that sounds a little vague but there are a number of things which can cause the boot process to hang and/or keep trying to start a process.Well Vrai, it is during the boot process. The last 5 or 6 times booting up, no squares. This morning squares again. Wizardfromoz I will check out the posts for sure. Thanks!
