Removing the darn thing results in a dark screen. It's almost a Windows blue screen of death experience. And I've had this experience twice.
So now I'm left with a blank screen, gde hangs.
What are my options? Trying:
- Install KDE
- apt-get install kde-full
Perhaps the HP EliteBook favors another Linux flavour?
The trick worked. After installing KDE wicd runs like a charm .. in KDE that is.
