Ubuntu :: Change Desktop Environment From Command Line?Jun 13, 2011
I installed the latest version off the download site yesterday, when first booting an error message came up that my hardware does not support the most recent desktop environment so I should switch to classic. After a bit of googling I found out how to do this.
The problem is that my hardware really doesn't support the current desktop environmet, I can't get the windows to appear, I just get black rectangles in the middle of the screen instead, so the GUI is inaccessable.
I am looking for instructions on changing the desktop environment from a command line (which I can boot to).
