    ubuntu 10.04 wont boot in graphical mode

    hello, i;m having problems in getting ubuntu to boot in graphical mode, i mean, i don't care if it always booted in text mode if i could startx with a command but no command seems to be working...

    this problem is after i installed the nvidia drivers, i had to make it boot in text mode so i used this;

    #update-rc.d -f gdm remove

    or

    #/etc/init.d/gdm stop

    i tried both, dont remember which one worked but i was able to install the drivers..

    after that i keep getting this messages when i boot up:

    first pic is shown when i input: startx

    second pic is show when i press CTRL+ALT+F7

    last pic is show when i input: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start


    HELP ME PLEASE

    try
    Code:
    service gdm start
    Code:
    gdm start
    though it apperars you have xorg errors, can you post your config file, /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    a pic would be fine

    Code:
    nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    to exit hit CTRL + x

    I think that you removed a gdm file in your first post that messed up gdm.
