    Question ThinkPad T400 - No Desktop

    Hi,

    I have installed Xubuntu 13.10 amd64 on ThinkPad T400 for my neighbour and converted his laptop from Windows to Linux.

    It was about 24hours later, he told me that he can't login to his desktop anymore. He got the Splash Screen where there is Xubuntu Logo and the circle spinning and that is all. I tried with him some steps but we both agreed that he come over to drop his laptop so I can have a better look.

    I am not sure what exactly he has done but he said he tried to install dropbox and iTunes and it seems he managed to install dropbox but of course couldn't install iTunes from their website.

    Anyway, any idea what should be done?

    Thanks!

    Re: ThinkPad T400 - No Desktop

    More info about the Laptop specs would help.
    Does this laptop have 'Hybrid Graphics'? If it does, then I would start diagnosing this aspect. It may be possible that your friend may have been prompted for 'additional driver' and must have accepted it.

    Also remove 'quite splash' from kernel line and check what's going on.

    Hope this help:

    Thinkpad T400 with Centrino 2 @2.53GHz with 3GB RAM - Intel Graphics - Wireless driver = iwlwifi.

    I can't get more information at the moment from that laptop because my neighbour forgot to bring the charger and the laptop is off now but this information I had previously. The charger should be here in less than an hour!

    Does this laptop have 'Hybrid Graphics'? If it does, then I would start diagnosing this aspect.
    I am not sure. How to check?

    Code:
    lshw -C display
    correct?

    I don't think so. The laptop was working fine and Intel does not need 'additional drivers' AFAIK. And, I have asked him about what he did so he didn't mention anything about the drivers!

    I will have a look, thanks

    Also remove 'quite splash' from kernel line and check what's going on.
    I might try this as well

    By the way, I can enter the recovery mode easily!

    I can enter the recovery mode but still no desktop (GUI)!

    Re: ThinkPad T400 - No Desktop

    Code:
    quite splash
    Has been removed, nothing happened.

    It drops to tty1

    After logging in (CLI), typing:
    Code:
    startx
    Gives black screen and nothing happened

    NOT sure what to do next?

    Re: ThinkPad T400 - No Desktop

    Because I have no time and because I felt there is more problems with this installation, not only the graphics issue, I have removed 13.10 and installed Xubuntu 12.04.3 and I just can NOT believe how fast the laptop became??!! I think Xubuntu 12.04 is faster than 13.10 and so far, ThinkPad T400 has no issue at all. Did not even ask for additional drivers. Everything is great now except iTunes and that is being discussed on different thread on the mailing list.

    Maybe Xubuntu 13.10 with Kernel 3.11 series will not work as good as Xubuntu 12.04 with Kernel 3.2 series

    Thank you for everything and I will keep an eye on the laptop for 24 hours to see if there will be any issue and report back

    Marked as Solved.
    For now, the machine is up and running with Xubuntu 12.04.3 and became even faster (Xubuntu 12.04.3 seems better and faster than 13.10).

    Thank you!
