    Re: PC now starts with server login instead of Unity desktop

    I've stopped each service and tried to start (and restart) only one, but the computer froze each time.

    I'll be able to check the lightdm.log when I get home later. Thank you for your help!

    It sounds like a graphics card issue to me... have you tried plugging your screen into the mainboard rather than the graphics card?

    Re: PC now starts with server login instead of Unity desktop

    I tried powering off, switching the monitor cord to the motherboard VGA out, but this did not show anything at all.

    I've removed gdm to avoid any confusion on my part (or the system's). Then I rebooted, and here are the contents of all logs in the /var/log/lightdm directory. I agree that this looks like a video card problem but I don't know how to correct this. It's even more confusing since it worked fine for a few weeks, and then after my seemingly innocent changes, I have these problems. Thanks again to all for your help.
