Screen flicker after apt-get upgrade

Hi there,

I ran apt-get upgrade last week and today noticed two things when I rebooted the machine.

1. Autologin was no longer enabled - I assume that the config file was overwritten - fixed!

2. The desktop flickers after I login.  I stopped it flickering by running

pkill compton

However, I'd like to avoid having to do this each time.  Does anyone have any ideas where to start please?  It is a dell latitude with 915 video hardware.

Thank you,

Martyn

Re: Screen flicker after apt-get upgrade

To update and upgrade you should...

sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Strange that your auto login config was overwritten, "might" be a systemd update.
