View Full Version : Having trouble logging into ubuntu 9.10

hi all,
I recently installed ubuntu 9.10 inside windows xp using wubi. It was working fine for about a week. I had installed ruby, rails etc and everything was looking good. But the next time i booted, i see a tty login screen where i enter my username and password, and am taken to a prompt. How do I get into the system i.e GUI part of it?? I cannot see the normal login screens.
I had read that typing 'startx' at the prompt will work, but that just takes me to a blank screen. Any help appreciated!
