View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] I always out my foot into it! Fingerprint black screen

July 22nd, 2008, 08:04 PM
Could someone please tell me what terminal commands will restore the graphic interface on 8.04?
Background: Tried (unsuccessfully) to install Fingerprint Theme on usplash. After reboot got only a black screen. Managed (thru Ctrl-Alt-F1) to restore Ubuntu splash screen but I can only get a tty for login and afterwards. If I Ctrl-Alt-F7 I only get a black screen. Can toggle to tty1 etc. GDM is running already but I can only see black.
Required: I have no idea how to restore graphics. Could anybody speak the magic words?:oops:

If it is a bad X config, then sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg wil probably do the trick.
