Ubuntu desktop missing(5 posts)
I'm confused... your desktop was deleted? Did you get into X Win or Gnome at all?
Normally I just use Alt+F2 within gnome or KDE to bring up the run box, then gnome-terminal or konsole to bring up a console, and then install from there.
Yes, desktop was deleted.
As a v.green newbie,didn't have a clue how to get into X Win or Gnome.
-did a clean install cuz figured the whole all was trashed
Ubi was working flawlessly for 4mos.,[with the exception of Automatix breaking Updates&downloads: but that was solved by using cmd lines in the terminal], so never bothered to read troubleshooting FeistyFawn forum posts in depth
Many Thanks, Supermansghost,
will use Your advice when the disappearing desktop re-occurs due to my carelessness.
