Hope this helps.

Thanks Torreydale, but I never get to see this window in 3.0. The menu item in 2.8 produced it but the same menu in 3.0 just logs you out; as specified in the tooltip.
It looks like a design change.

I installed LL 3 yesterday and also had my cursor disappear, (64 bit)
On trying to see if it was a software problem or if it was something I had done, I managed too dis enable my touchpad (definitely my fault ha ha) Having to use a mouse.

Otherwise seems as impressive as normal :)

When I install a new upgrade, I always have a couple of days trying too push it to its limits and try things I normally wouldn't, then do a total new install, as it only takes minutes.

I'll continue pushing it, today, do a fresh install tomorrow, and report back.

BTW thanks to all :)

Congratulations on V3.0. Everything I have tested works fine but just 3 problems you might like to know about.
1. I cannot find a 'Restart' button. The icon in the menu is just a logout option. Adding the applet to the panel offers 'logout', 'shutdown' etc but not 'restart'. The only way to restart is to logout and then restart form the menu on the login panel. Am I missing the obvious?
2. The printer problem is common to all Ubuntu distros I have tested. IT applies to Epson XP310. The installer identifies the printer and finds a driver. I accept the license, message "Installing Driver" then takes me back to the driver search screen. This behaviour repeats over and over. Has anybody else encountered this with any printer? I am surprised that the Printer installer is not included in the Settings Manager as it is with most other distros.
3. My mouse cursor disappears, particular if I logout or lock screen and then return. If I logout again and login the cursor has returned.
4. One observation, that is purely subjective, is the default theme and window settings. The Title bar merges with the panel and other windows. It is difficult to identify to click and move a window. I solve this by using the Moheli window style.
