    Did you get to the terminal automatically? Or did you start it with

    ctrl + alt + t (a terminal window)
    or
    ctrl +alt + F3 (a text screen)?

    Yes, I'm starting to think so too. We need to find out if (and how) the system is broken, or if (s)he is trying to do something strange.

    daviddixit,

    Is your Ubuntu system installed with a graphical desktop environment (the standard is Unity)? Are you looking for another one, and that is why you install gnome-session?

    Or is your Ubuntu system installed with a text user interface (Ubuntu Server or Ubuntu mini-iso)? And you are trying to get a graphical user interface to work properly?

    When I do this it asks of I have the privileges of a superutulisateur (I am in France)
    It doen´t accepte either yes or oui...
    I have not understood enough to help, so far we seem to be talking about different things. I'm willing to continue to try and help, but I think we need help from some more people. Schragge has solved some other difficult cases, so please try to answer his questions!

    I think we have problems to communicate, because none of us speak native English. You might get better help explaining in French

    - your computer system (hardware and software, what you have installed)
    - what you want to do
    - what errors you get

    That could be done here, hoping someone else speaking French can help you, or if there is an active French Ubuntu web-site, you could also post your request there (and include a link to this thread).

    Re: How to log out of the teminal

    If you accessed the terminal from the dash menu, the following should work:
    Code:
    exit
    or
    Code:
    logout
    Otherwise you can use Ctrl+alt+F7.

    If you just have the terminal when starting your machine, there might be a little bit of troubleshooting that's needed. You can try:
    Code:
    startx

    Ok, thank you, when I use exit it exits, then I am asked for the Master password, which then returns me to the terminal !

    In the middle of this, the circular icon appears at the top right hand corner. Should I turn the computer off then ?

    Re: How to log out of the teminal

    Do you want to shut down the computer completely from a command line environment?

    Try
    Code:
    shutdown -P now
    to power the machine down completely

    or
    Code:
    shutdown -r now
    to restart.

    Look at
    Code:
    man shutdown
    for more shutdown options.
