    Ubuntu 10.04 No GUI

    I've got a system that over the weekend I rebooted and since then it no longer loads a GUI beyond the "ubuntu" splash screen with 5 red dots under it.

    The interesting thing (at least to me) is the system is definitely loading because I can access the system via ssh. It also appears that X is starting from the gdm logs, and I can export my display to :0 and force start a gnome-session to the local screen that way. I just currently do not get to the point where the GDM greeter is starting and allowing me to log in at the box.

    What version of ubuntu are you running?
    Can you start up the X session with startx ? 12.04 has a different command like /etc/init.d/lightdm or some such .. I am not sure at all.

    Can we not re-install the desktop to resolve?

    kindly regarding <==BDQ
