I hope you could help...
My wife was trying to install brushes on GIMP so she had to access the System Files. She was trying to unlock ROOT .
The first command she (read in Ask Ubuntu that had to be entered) in was :
- type in the command "gksu nautilus" and press ENTER
Howevere the ROOT kept on staying locked.
So the next one she tried was "sudo passwd"- this is where the Hard disc started getting filled up by its 45g space. Afterwards whatever she was trying to do it just kept on doing the same thing, saying that there is a an Error in copying a file that I can't remember the name of.
So basicly now when we switch it on -this is what comes on the screen:
THE SYSTEM IS RUNNING IN LOW-GRAPHICS MODE
Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO?
-Run in low-graphic mode fore just one session
-Troubleshoot the error
-Exit to console login
-Cancel ^ OK (options at the bottom right corner)
AND WHATEVER WE CHOOSE IT TAKES US TO AN OLD SCHOOL DARK PAGE WITH SIGNS LIKE:
*Stopping system V runlevel compatibility
So from here unless we switch if off from its main button nothing else happens or at least we dont know what to do.
Please let me know what we need to do in order to bring it back to life!
