I have been using lubuntu for a couple of days now as a VM under virtualbox. After installing a few updates I rebooted the machine and entered my password to login. Upon hitting enter the login dialogue disappeared as I would expect however nothing else happens!
I can reach the terminal using Ctrl + Alt + F1 but I would really like my GUI back
I tried the following which was recommended on another forum.
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop
sudo mv -v .Xauthority .Xauthoritybak
sudo shutdown now -r
After trying this when logging in I get a black screen with some text that displays to quickly to read. I am then returned to the login prompt. Again I can still access the terminal but it seems I've made things worse?
Any help would be much appreciated
