    Lightdm no longer starting

    Hello everybody,

    I played a bit with my 13.10 installation and managed to break Lightdm :/

    I had Lubuntu/Xubuntu/Ubuntu installed and tried to remove Ubuntu following http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purelubuntu

    Now I can't get to my desktop. At boot I have the following items failing :
    Starting load fallback graphics devices
    Starting Lightdm Display Manager
    Starting Send an event to indicate plymouth is up

    Thank you for the help.

    Yes sure, that's what I call playing. I'm not saying that's smart !

    Did you try Recovery Mode, repair broken packages

    From recovery root prompt.

    Hi,

    I've been away from the computer for a few days. After today's upgrades, works like a charm again. Can't say what did the trick though.
