View Full Version : [kubuntu] Install gone horrably wrong
May 3rd, 2008, 02:12 AM
Ok I was trying to install btnx so I could use my side buttons on my mouse and I uninstalled libgtk2.0-0 somehow. So then I reinstalled it but when I rebooted my computer I go strait to the command line instead of my login screen and when i typed firefox this came up GTK- WARNING**: cannot open display. Can anyone help me restore my computer to how it was before when I could use the log in screen. Or help me fix my problem.

If so maybe have a look at:
