hi. i just made a live usb of linux mint 13 cinnamon to install to a partition. it booted fine and the live session had an error of x server not starting so after i clicked ok, it went to gnome fallback or something. it showed me desktop and everything. i installed it anyway assuming it would do this again when i rebooted the system and used it after install from usb. well it didn't. it just drops me to the black screen to type stuff. i am not good with this. just wondering also why i can't even at least use the gnome fallback as it worked on the live media.
cinnamon also seemed to not work with the new snow linux i downloaded as well but it did the same thing to let me use gnome fallback.
