View Full Version : [ubuntu] No GUI on my Ubuntu machine

November 26th, 2009, 11:00 AM
Hi everyone!

I have 10000 questions as I have never used Ubuntu, but I'm hoping to find all the answers (already found some) on this forum and on the free guide.

But before I try to find an answer to all the other questions, would anybody know why I can't see any GUI? I can only see the prompt command window! I understand I should be able to view a desktop of some sort? How do I access that?

Thank you :)

See the ATI & Nvidia sticky thread above.
