Ubuntu Installation :: Graphical With 11.04 - Desktop Wasn't Able To Load Properly

Apr 30, 2011

I had just upgraded when after the first reboot I noticed that the black Ubuntu screen (with the little red/white dots) is actually white and buggy. It's unreadable and looks trashed.

After the first login, the desktop wasn't able to load properly, leaving me with a blinking, unresponsive icons and no menubars.

The only way to use the desktop environment is to choose Ubuntu Classic (both with and without effects) and Ubuntu Safe Mode.

I do have nvidia drivers installed (173).

Ubuntu :: Can't Start Desktop If User Wasn't Properly Logged Off - 10.04

Jul 14, 2010

10.04, clean installs, running Gnome or LXDE.

- a logged-on user wasn't properly logged off
- the system is restarted
- the same user attempts to log in


This seems repeatable, and happened on 2 different PCs.

When logged into Gnome as another user and trying to sudo a backup of the borked user's home before attempting a repair, a ".gvfs" file is reported "in use" and can't be copied.

It happened to me quite a few times, due to crash or more often power failure, or my sudo-errors. I now keep a few spare virgin sudo-enabled cloned accounts just in case one dies that way.

CentOS 5 :: Graphical Desktop Won't Load?

Jan 29, 2010

I installed CentOS with KDE and Gnome. the computer starts with a console instead of a window manager. When I try to start Gnome (using either startx or gdm), it freezes the whole computer. I can't even get to another command prompt using Control+Alt+F2, when I try to start Gnome.

After rebooting I tried starting KDE using the kdm command, but it prints out some error messages and logs me out of my session. (I've never seen a program force a log out of a session before! I thought that was strange.) I tried to record the errors by using the command "kdm > errors.log" and "kdm >> errors.log", but nothing is written to the errors.log file.

Also, under the (likely?) case that this problem is caused by the graphics card, I ran lspci and discovered that this computer contains this graphics card: VGA Compatible Controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 04)

OpenSUSE Install :: SELinux Working In 11.2 - Failure To Allow The Graphical Desktop To Load (even With Enforcing=0)

Feb 12, 2010

I've been trying to get SELinux working in OpenSUSE 11.2. So far I can get to runlevel 3 with enforcing=0. Before I start tinkering with audit2allow, The 11.2 repository gives me these policy rpms:


But that version of policy has some issues in OpenSUSE:

1) failure to allow the graphical desktop to load (even with enforcing=0) . The following message appears in the console during boot:

** (gdm:1073): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to system bus: A SELinux policy prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient (rejected message had sender "(unset)" interface "org.freedesktop.DBus" member "Hello" erro name "(unset)" destination "org.freedesktop.DBus") startproc: exit status of parent of /usr/sbin/gdm: 1 Since enforcing is off, I'm surprised to see a message like that. SELinux shouldn't be preventing anything, so I don't see how modifying policy will solve that. Ideas?

2) Attempting to boot to runlevel 5 with kernel parms "security=selinux selinux=1 enforcing=0", I'm dropped off in runlevel 3 instead. I'm getting a couple of pages of AVC errors after boot (see below). I've tried several other versions of the policy without luck:

- the version included in Fedora 12 (refpolicy-2.2009117
- the latest release from Tresys
- the latest from the repository at Tresys

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Load User's Graphical Environment After Nvidia Driver Installation

Jul 20, 2011

I have my first problem with drivers in Linux! I installed openSuSE 11.4 x86 on my computer (Intel Dual-Core 2,5 Ghz; Nvidia 7300 GS) and after installing graphical drivers (proprietary) I can't load the system. All I have is a progress bar of user's profile loading and playing the startup sound. I already installed openSUSE 11.4 x86_64 version on this computer and there was no problem with drivers.

Debian Installation :: Installing The Squeeze Graphical Desktop?

Aug 28, 2011

I am trying to install Squeeze (Debian 6.0.2), KDE environment, desktop PC, older 32-bit single CPU, 40 GB hard drive wholedisk, 2 GB RAM). I am trying to install an encrypted hard drive (takeover installation using entire hard drive).

Each time I try this I seem to run into different problems, and to date I have not succeeded in obtaining graphical installation. My most recent previous thread on my problems is at


It contains video controller hardware information. (In that thread I mentioned a desktop and a laptop; I am currently trying to install Squeeze on the desktop PC, not the laptop!)

It seems I will need to request using apt in the shell the Squeeze package firmware-linux-nonfree. I am not familiar with configuring apt from the command line. Can anyone just tell me what I need? (I have many other things I am trying to learn today, so RTFM would not be helpful in this instance.) I am hoping apt will be autoconfigured well enough to get the deb if I simply give the command. Would it be

apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree

I want to ensure before trying to get apt to install debs over the internet that the key-signing and package verification is working. I hope that all is done automatically by the installer, but does anyone know with certainty? I stress that (as I understand things) checking the GPG signature of a signed deb is different from and complementary with checking the integrity hash; both verifications are crucially important. The reason I ask is that at least under oldstable (Lenny) there was a separate debsig package, which seems to imply that apt does not automatically acquire the ability to check the GPG signature of signed debs.

Someone said that in addition to non-free drivers I might need to obtain firmware. I have never been able to do this successfully, probably because hardware sites assume Windows users and I don't use Windows at all.

Fedora Installation :: F12 - USB / DVD Copy Program Fails To Load Properly

I downloaded the Fedora Live USB creator and the program consistently fails to load properly onto the flash drive. I have also downloaded the DVD iso program from this site and get only errors when trying to boot with an ISO burner? I am attempting to load the program on Sun Virtual Box, which is like VMare's Workstation, and the prompt consistently reads error when attempting to install. Also the progress bar on the Live USB loader never stops even after it the cmd prompt says it is complete.

Ubuntu Installation :: Load 11.04 Desktop From USB?

Jun 1, 2011

What I meant is after trying to load Ubuntu 11.04 Desktop from USB, my laptop directed loaded into a Grub bash like interface. Seems like I could manual load Ubuntu by hand, but the Grub interface are so different, I have no idea how to do that.

I tried 'boot', it ask me to load Kernel first, but how can I found kernel in my USB drive?

BTW, what I am trying to do is install Ubuntu 11.04 though UEFI.

Ubuntu Installation :: Desktop Won't Load & Terminal Is Illegible

May 9, 2011

After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04, my machine was freezing as the desktop was loading. The mouse pointer would move and some of the basic shortcut keys would work, but nothing on the screen was responsive.

I've got the NVIDIA 7300 LE video card, so i thought it was a conflict between that and UNITY (which I have ZERO interest in running), so I move over to a terminal login and this is what it looks like: [url] (click for pic - apparently, not everybody uses a 55" LCD as a monitor)

I can type like a regular terminal window, but obviously I can't read anything. I ran 'sudo apt-get remove unity' (and then 'sudo apt-get install gnome' when that didn't work) but the desktop still doesn't load and the terminal login tabs are still completely illegible.

Ubuntu Installation :: HP Pavilion A6750t Desktop Won't Load After Restart System?

Sep 5, 2010

I tried to do a clean install of 10.04 on the above desktop. It was previously running 9.10 fine.

I booted with a 10.04 live CD, used Gparted to delete the previous partition that 9.10 was in. Installed 10.04 and chose the option to install in the largest continuous free disc space.

The installation seemed to go fine, but when I re-start the system, GRUB loads, I select Linux, then I get a flashing cursor and the monitor goes to sleep as it shows like it is getting no signal.

When I boot Vista on the same system it works fine.

From the sound of the hard drive, I am guessing that it is not loading the Ubuntu OS, I don't think this is a video driver problem.

Fedora Installation :: Actual Xfce Desktop Does Not Load

Mar 13, 2010

I am trying to split up partition between Windows and Linux...I'm trying out a few distros for my wife's laptop. I have Live CD's of the latest Fedora and Xubuntu. Started off with Xubuntu and the live CD detected everything very well so I installed it a split up the drive between it and vista using the install manager.

Windows is fine, but after logging into the default Kernel (generic etc..) it doesn't load the actual Xfce desktop, but just leaves me at the command promp ttyl I think. I tried to run "startxfce4" and got an error that no drivers were detected.

There's also a error when I first boot up that something couldn't be mounted. I'll re-post the error info in full when I get back, but where should I get started? How do I get into the actual desktop environment? I also can't get into root, as I don't know what the default password is, so I can't install anything.

Ubuntu :: Theme Doesn't Load Properly

Apr 11, 2010

Sometimes when I log on, I find that the theme (specifically the window borders and icons) didn't load properly, and that I instead get a set of grayish window borders (Raleigh, I believe) and the gray GNOME icons. Sometimes the window borders corrects itself, but the icons stay the same. Reloading compiz doesn't help, and the only solution I found was to logoff/logon.

Fedora :: Cannot Get Graphical Desktop On Boot When No Monitor Attached (F13)

Jun 2, 2010

I've put a fresh install of Fedora 13 x86_64 on my new server and I have it automatically log in to the gnome desktop so I can control it via VNC. However this only happens when there is a monitor physically connected when the computer boots. If there is no monitor present at boot time, there is no graphical session started, however I want it to start whether or not a monitor is present.

My hardware is a Zotac IONITX-G-E board (which has an Atom N330 and a NVidia ion chipset of some description). I'm using the Fedora default graphics driver (nouveau). Why doesn't it start a graphical session with no monitor, and is there any way to get Fedora to start one whether or not there is a monitor connected?

General :: Messed Up And Lost Graphical Desktop And Login Screen?

Jun 14, 2010

I was in the middle of deleting the Xine movie player, and clicked a box wrong. I lost everything possible on the graphical desktop as well as a log in screen for Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic). Since then I did a few things:1. apt-get install ubuntu-desktop2. apt-get install kubuntu-desktop3. apt-get remove kubuntu-desktopAfter all this, I still have the login screen for Kubuntu. But I don't want that. I want to get back to the Ubuntu login screen, and the orange colored desktop. Right now -- after I log in -- I only have a terminal to use. And I have the blue background of Kubuntu. What do I need to do to get rid of the Kubuntu graphics and back to my original login screen, plus the Ubuntu (karmic) graphics and toolbars / menus?
