View Full Version : [kubuntu] No GUI after upgrade

April 27th, 2010, 04:04 AM
I ran an update about a week ago - I am not sure what update was but the update did not all the GUI to display.

Boot Sequence is okay but as soon as the nice Ubuntu image loads up usually the cool login GUI shows up after but instead I get a constant blinking console for a login.

I couldn't figure out what it was through logs and I didn't make a restore point so I took my info of the hard-drive and re-installed Ubuntu.

I ran into this problem again but this time I did not update anything. I had to log out of my account to switch monitors BUT I had Ubuntu set to automatically log my user name in when my finishes booting up (some option that is use-full). So now it is back to the constant blinking login console.

so what I got now is:
1) my computer automatically load my user name up
2) Switched monitors so I had to log off
3) After Logging Off I got a constant login console NOT GUI blinking like mad.
4) Tried rebooting and the issue still remains

I am kinda confused any tips or direction will be great,

It sounds like you don't know how to get to the gui from the command line login...

1) Enter your username and password (when prompted).
2) enter "startx" (without "")

It may not be exactly what you want, but it's better than nothing until someone else can help you more.
