View Full Version : [xubuntu] xubuntu demo loads in command line?

June 3rd, 2009, 11:53 AM
I just burn a iso cd for Xubuntu and booted from it to look what it's like but when the demo from the live cd opens there's just a command line interface, not hte xfce graphical interface I was expecting... What is going wrong?:(

If you get a command prompt, type: startx

check if you installed the live cd version but not the alternative version which is command line only (for computers with little ram).

if you did not take the alternative disk then do startx as suggested.

if that does not work then when it asks you about languages and such before it boots, find safe graphic mode and boot.

Ok I'm going to do it and see what happens.

Yes, after typing startx the desktop loads, thank you very much for your support! Now I'm trying this Xubuntu and see what it's like.:D:D:D
