    Re: Fresh Install of 11.10 problem

    Ok MAFoElffen,

    I've finally managed to get this code into my computer thanks to the ALT key. So, it turns out my video card is nVidia. The output was ...
    01:00 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation G98 [GeForce 9300MGS][10de:06e9](rev a1)(prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    Nevertheless, the "nomodeset" insert still doesn't help me.

    Can you think of anything I can do from here? I'm trying really hard to persevere with this but it's becoming quite frustrating.

    Cheers.

    Bring me up to speed here please: So many posters I loose track of who said what, it's contents by inputting code:
    • you are booting to liveCD/USB now?
    • yes, you have an xorg.conf file, you can see #&/OR# optionally edit the file with the following commands:
      Code:
      • cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf # that lists the file, remember, everything is case sensitive: that's a reason to simply copy & paste commands, rather than trying to type them in correctly.
      • sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf #that will open it for editing.
    • There are many other codes you can add to the boot line besides nomodeset. I'll find it here shortly..............
    • Oh yeah, you can try simply deleting the xorg.conf file too, save it as a backup which will effectively prevent the system from loading it, then change it back if that doesn't help. How?
      • Code:
         sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup

    See if you have lightdm and lightdm-gtk-theme.
    Installing gdm package helps.
    Run dpkg-reconfigure gdm.

    I had a very similar problem upgrading from 12.04 to 12.10 with an ATI Raedon card.
    In the end I dropped down to root terminal via Recover mode and removed fglrx

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove fglrx
    Rebooted and all was well in the world again.
