Upgrade from Xubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS

Here are the couple things that I found that I had to fix when upgrading from Xubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS:

  1. I was not getting DNS resolution
    • sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf
    • add:
    • UPDATE: the above does not last you should instead:
      • sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
      • add:
  2. My VNC session was not loading a window manage (giving a failure to load gnome message -- I also got a trash not supported error and application crashes when starting xfce4-session)
    • vi ~/.vnc/xstartup
    • make sure it has:
      startxfce4 &
  3. When running synaptic from the application menu, it would ask for a password then fail to load 
    • xhost +localhost
  4. noip2 was removed and not in the package list
    • cd /usr/local/src
    • sudo wget http://www.no-ip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
    • sudo tar xf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
    • cd noip2-2.1.9-1/
    • sudo make install
    • sudo /usr/local/bin/noip2 -C
    • sudo vi /etc/init.d/noip2
      • change:
    • sudo /etc/init.d/noip2 start
