Is there some reason you must use the standard Ubuntu? Is Ubuntu Mate not good for you?
Thank you for replying - though this is not info that helps me in my quest !!
If you sincerely wish to know what has brought me to this point, please have a look at the rather lengthy story...
For myself, usually, I always use Ubuntu Mate as it is my preferred distro & flavour.
As it happens, I did a little experiment in using a manually modified Aptik backup from the machine we've decided to get rid of because of defective h/w.
This was restored on top of a fresh installation of Ubuntu Mate 16.04 LTS.
It worked quite well & solved the problem - by NOT creating it to begin with !!
