Hello

Installed yesterday the 18.10 in dual boot with Windows, nothing appeared either on the desktop or on the upper bar.
When I try to change the desktop with right-hand click, or try to go to System setup, nothing happens.
Very strange and very frustrating, makes me want to come back to Windows...

My main reason to switch to GNU/Linux from Windows was the absurdity amount of ads I was getting and that I couldn't paint digitally because my Wacom tablet did weird stuff; so I found Ubuntu Studio.

I've had a lot of small but frustrating issues that would have made me go back to Windows if I weren't stubborn and a normal researcher, here are the issues so far:

- I tried first the version 18.04, the screen decreased it's brightness every minute or so even after I changed the settings, and did so even when playing media, like Youtube (still the same on 16.04 until I found the right option to change, because changing the setting on power manager did nothing).

- Then the nightmare, my fan stopped working on my laptop and it was heating a lot. It also didn't shut down when using the menu, so I installed the version 16.04 and the same thing happened.

-After resolving the fan issue (I still have to shut it down manually), I would have problems with my wireless headphones, now solved.

But because I love the performance and my graphic tablet works wonderfully I decided to keep going and so far has worked great. I also have to say that my laptop is old, around 7 years.

Has done great in hardware recognition. Includes sufficient applications for generating music and audio files. No problem but would be nice to include Audacious and Frescobaldi/Lilypond in the distribution.
