    ubuntu boots to terminal type prompt.

    since upgrading ubuntu boots to a prompt rather than logging into gnome. has anyone run into this? what can I do to fix this?
    I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.4.
    does anyone know the command to start gnome from the prompt?

    along these same lines....what if i wanted to do the reverse? have terminal prompt at start, which would require startx command to launch gnome. Ubuntu 10.04
