I have to revert back to the old 9.1.
This is the list of issues that I have found with the new one:
  - the new LXDE file manager
    - doesn't do SMB (Operation not permitted)
    - doesn't let me view the trash (operation not permitted)
    - doesn't let you copy files from the file manager to the desktop 
(operation not permitted)
  - using dolphin
    - doesn't let you open files (trying to open openoffice files, 
something about not being able to execute the openoffice.. or any other 
    - extremely slow to open
    - can't drag files to desktop
    - can't CTRL+C and CTRL+V files into LXDE file managers
    - doesn't share clipboard
  - App-Cafe:
    - I have 16 Open office icons under the "Office" folder, not 16 
"ApacheOpenOffice", but 16 times each executable (base, calc, impess, 
    - two "thunderbird" icons (one of those has "different colors")
    - clicking on "remove menu/desktop icon" doesn't do anything
    - clicking on "auto-update"  gets automatically unclicked (I was not 
logged in as administrator, maybe that is the reason ?)
