    Re: ubuntu wont load up after software update

    crewrecline; Good job !
    Sorry for delay in response, got busy elsewise.


    At this point I do not know.
    Here's the situation:
    Running (as you know) version 13.04 with kernel 3.5.0-28 // 64 bit
    You are running Intel for a graphics card that is well supported out of the box by ubuntuu
    The driver loaded is for Intel (i915 driver)
    (Intel does not honor the "nomodeset" kernel boot option ->blue lines)

    So, after this leap forward you just completed, back to baby steps.

    From the text login -> what results in terminal code
    Code:
    sudo service lightdm start
    Post back the output, looking for indications of errors.

    Be advised I Have not installed 13.04 to this time and thus have not had an oportunity to investigate it --- Soonest I go to town I will pick up some DVDs and get it installed -- I expect the lightdm command is still valid to initiate the desk top from the command line interface.

    Pending is looking at the log files for indicative errors.

    we be look'n

    crewrecline;
    It is my pleasure to assist (and teach)...participation in the open source movement.

    UHHH... back up --your last screen shot -> you were not logged in.

    Get to the grub menu, edit in "text" in the kernel boot parameter command line, log in at the terminal and post the out put of terminal command: -- this method is non-persistent, must be re-done each boot--.
    Code:
    sudo service lightdm start
    just to see what happens when you attempt to start the desktop environment.

    try'n to step out

    crewrecline;

    Well that is better than I anticipated/// OK ...

    From that exact point (after issuing the lightdm start command) do:
    key combo clt+alt+f7
    That takes you to the GUI login;
    login there and see if you can get to the GUI desk top... what does it look like ?
    to return to the terminal -> key combo clt+alt+f1

    it is what it is

    Re: ubuntu wont load up after software update

    alright after issuing the lightdm start command it takes me straight to this, on the right side of the screen it says [ok] for all of them

    i hit ctl alt f7 and nothing happens
    when i go back to the terminal it looks like this

    i also tried ctl alt f7 here too but it takes me back to the first picture

    Re: ubuntu wont load up after software update

    crewrecline;

    IDK, but something here is definitely not kosher, With the invocation of the second start lightdm - as one is already started - I would have expected an advisory that it was already running .

    I hate to run you through hoops. but let's check from the beginning.
    shut down and start all over from the beginning:
    terminal code to shut the system down safely:
    Code:
    sudo shutdown -P now
    wait a minute or so and fire the box back up
    get to the grub menu, do the "text" insert routine;
    login to that terminal
    Code:
    sudo service lightdm start
    only run this command one time
    now key combo ctl+alt+f7

    Still no GUI login ?

    Again I say I am not certain that the "lightdm start" command remains valid in 13.04 version ... someone running 13.04 test and advise please ...


    poke'n to see what haps

    crewrecline;
    It is now time to look at some log files;
    It may be most useful to look at the Xorg log file first.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pastebinit
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | pastebinit
    Copy and paste the URL from the last command into your next post.

    I am going to be away from the keyboard for a spell,- quality time with my better half - I will return this evening.

    try'n to see what is not going on
