View Full Version : “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error but can run startx

June 12th, 2015, 02:35 AM
After an update my machine started to give "low-graphics mode" error. I followed the possible options but didn't help.
I am checking forums for the last couple of hours and tried almost all but nothing helped.

However, if I first choose the option to start low-graphics mode, X shuts down. After that if I run "startx" from tty terminal everything works perfect.

The only error I could see in Xorg.0.log is "No screen found"
How can I detect the source of the problem ? Any help is appreciated.

Hi again,
I solved the problem but Ubuntu's behaviour is weird. The problem is not about the recent update but its because of a simple line I moved from .bashrc to /etc/profile while ago and never tested. The line was merely a script call
. $ilkerScripts/bashRC
However ilkerScripts is defined in /etc/environment and I didn't know that it wouldn't be initialized when system runs /etc/profile. So system is trying to run a nonexistent file /bashRC.

Now the weird thing is that Ubuntu is giving an unrelated error and crashing at low graphics mode. Does anyone have any explanation ?
