    Exclamation XBMC hijacked my computer!!

    So i was trying out different ways of networking my 360 to my computer. i have several hundred gigs of movies and stuff on my hard drive, and it looks a lot better on the 40 inch tv than on my crt monitor

    i installed xbmc, and didn't like it, and finally settled with ushare.

    problem is, when i restarted my computer, xbmc took over! no more ubuntu! so i logged out, and logged in as root into a terminal, and removed xbmc using apt-get. i removed all of its lib files as well. however, now when i restart, i get this error:

    Code:
    /etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning Session Setup...
    Setting IM through im-switch for locale=en_US.
    Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.exec: 1: xbmc: Not Found
    (this is an error log from ~/.xsession-errors)
    help me! i am using gnome's safe mode option to boot right now, but i need to get back to normal

    Simple. You installed XBMC live, which removes Ubuntu-desktop. You have to make sure you check what new packages will remove when you install them... simply run:

    Code:
     sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

    I was just hoping you forgot something.

    What I think is going on is that you either removed an important lib or xbmc did not completely uninstall. Try this:


    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge xbmc xbmc-live
    and then

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean

    Re: XBMC hijacked my computer!!

    when i enter the apt-get remove command, i get this:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package xbmc is not installed, so not removed
    E: Couldn't find package xbmc-live

    and when i apt-get clean, it just does its thing, and that's it.


    EDIT: i re-logged, and i still get the same error as in my first post:

    /etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning Session Setup...
    Setting IM through im-switch for locale=en_US.
    Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.exec: 1: xbmc: Not Found
    (this is an error log from ~/.xsession-errors)

    i know it's telling me what's wrong in that error, but i just don't know what it means lol

    Try fixing dependencies.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install

    Re: XBMC hijacked my computer!!

    haha, I see the solution! It's in the error!


    Code:
    Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.exec: 1: xbmc: Not Found
    (this is an error log from ~/.xsession-errors)
    open a terminal, and run:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.exec
    Remove xbmc from the first line, and save it. Fixed.


    EDIT: If you cant get into Gnome, just run:

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.exec
    I hope you know how to use nano. After you remove xbmc from the first line press ctrl+X and then type Yes and hit enter twice.

    Re: XBMC hijacked my computer!!

    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.exec opens a blank file
    so i guess it doesn't exist. i found /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default, but the term "xbmc" is not anywhere in the file.

    also i tried fixing the dependencies, and nothing changes
