Hi all, I tried installing Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu 12.10 and after I restarted Unity was gone and all I could see was desktop shortcuts, no Conky or anything else. I then ran the nvidia-xconfig and it said to restart the server so I ran
and I got impatient and went to a new screen (ctrl+alt+F1) and logged in as root and ran
sudo service lightdm restart
I then rebooted and now it can't get it to open in my normal 1366x768 resolution. It is in 640x480 I beleive.
Please help me learn what I have done wrong and hwo to fix it. Was it because I ran startx as root? Anyway I uninstalled the Nvidia driver with
and it didn't fix it. Please help!!
sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-current
