    Re: How to log out of the teminal

    These don´t work. I keep coming back to the terminal, even after rebooting the computer.

    Did you notice this?

    I'm afraid I don't quite see exactly what your problem is. Is it that you cannot get to a graphical user interfacr, a desktop? That all you can get is a command line environment? In that case, the comment from lisati does apply.

    Did you recently install any video drivers?

    You may be able to get into 'recovery mode' if you hold down the shift key just before ubuntu starts to load.

    I haven´t recently installed anything.

    I tried holding the shift key down, but it still comes back to the terminal.

    Re: How to log out of the teminal

    David, you have posted this in the Absolute Beginners section, so I presume you are new to Ubuntu.

    We are feeling a little confused. Please give us a bit of background: Did you recently install Ubuntu? Which version of Ubuntu are you using? What happens when you boot? Did you have a graphical user interface before, or did you always get only a terminal (by the way, without the graphical interface, it's called a console)?

    EDIT: I missed schragge's post.

    The wavy line ("~") is called a tilde (I believe it is un tilde in French). It represents your "home", i.e. where all your personal files are saved. I could be wrong, but I think you'll find the tilde on your keyboard using Shift+2.

    Re: How to log out of the teminal

    I tried startx only to be told: user not authorised to run the X server, aborting.

    I am certainly a beginner, but I have been using Ubuntu for over a year, but without having any problems!

    Yesterday evening, I turned my computer to find a window: could not update ICEauthority file/home/. ICEauthority

    I opened a console and tried : sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    It did its dance and finished with the word: master@mastermind:~$
    Waiting for a command.
    I tried a variety of things, then again : sudo -i apt-get dist-upgrade

    It said no updates, no new installations, nothing to delete, no updates.

    Now, I cannot get out of the console and reboot normally to see a desktop.

    Re: How to log out of the teminal

    So once again, please run

    Code:
    stat .ICEauthority
    and post the output here. Alternatively, you can post the output of

    Code:
    ls -l .ICEauthority # <- it's the small letter L
    I suppose the file permissions and/or ownership of .ICEauthority are wrong and want to see what they are.


    At least, try this
    Code:
    sudo chown master: .ICEauthority
    sudo chmod 0600 .ICEauthority
    Then reboot.

    • You go to consoles using Ctrl+Alt+F1 (or F2, F3, F4, F5 or F6).
    • The GUI is in Ctrl+Alt+F7, so press that key-combination to return there.
    • From the console, you can reboot with:
      Code:
      sudo reboot now
