    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    I used sudo apt-get autoremove
    it is now deleting things.
    It ends with Idconfig deferred processing now taking place,
    it is expecting a command ...

    I did that and it deleted all sorts of things.
    It now says: Idconfig deferred processing now taking place.
    It has now stopped and is waiting for a command.

    That takes some time, usually not expecting a command, just returning to prompt

    user@system /path $

    it ends with the master@mastermind:
    I should just wait then ?

    btw, thank you for your patience...

    Try again
    Code:
    # fix Broken packages -f 
    sudo apt-get -f install
    dpkg --configure -a
    and after that finally
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-session
    might work

    Done, It simply says that it has the most recent available version.

    Maybe I should explain, that when the terminal window shows that line with master@mastermind (or similar for other users), the previous command has finished, and the command line shell bash is ready for new commands.

    Good, in that case you have succeeded. Maybe you succeeded long ago to install gnome-session, but you did not realize that.

    Now what do you want to do with gnome-session? If you are lucky, you can log out and select it at the log in screen and log in again. If you are running Ubuntu, there is a round icon near the log in text. Click on it!
