    If the prompt is asking you for username and password just login, then run this command:
    Code:
    startx
    Are you seeing something graphical?

    For 1Gb RAM all, Unity, Cinnamon and Gnome-Classic, will be heavy. Try Xubuntu or Lubuntu.

    Are you using the cinnamon-stable ppa by chance.
    If so, it is a known issue that the version in the ppa causes problems with unity(breakage).

    I don't know if a bug report is out on this, but you can go to launchpad to find out.
