    Re: How to get to desktop from command prompt?

    Lets preface this by saying I used the Mythbuntu install.

    This could mean a few things. I got this when I screwed up my grub booter and I was left having to login manually. If you are not logging in manually, and you didnt see a boot option for the kernel.. I had to run the following:
    Code:
    apt-get --reinstall install grub
    update-grub
    and then my system booted properly into my desktop.

    If you are auto logging in, but not getting your desktop on a Mythbuntu installed system, I used:

    gdm start
