View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu boots into CLI, cannot get to GUI

December 29th, 2010, 10:09 PM
I just upgraded from ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 with update manager; now looking through the forums it appears that's not as good as just reinstalling. Upon restart i found myself in a full-screen command line, and I can't get to the familiar GUI.

I entered sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop and the response was that the desktop is the newest version. So it is there, how do I use it? Restarting brings me back to the command line.
