So, I'm having a problem with Xubuntu. The only problem ... really, rest everything is dandy.

Whenever I use Synaptic to upgrade my Firefox install or try to install some GUI like the MySQL Query Browser Synaptic tries to remove the following packages:

1. xwindow-system-core

2. xserver-xorg

3. xubuntu-desktop

When I remove these packages and restart my PC the XCFE GUI is gone, I tried restoring the packages using the shell apt-get but it didn't work. I had to re-install Xubuntu.

Someone help! I've posted this thread on the UbuntuForums


Problem Solved!!

Turns out, my Synaptic sources.list was jinxed. I fixed it by enabling the respositories using Applications Properties instead of manually adding them.
