Ubuntu 12.04 GUI won't load
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 19, 2013
How do I get it working again? When I select Ubuntu from the grub menu, I get the purple splash screen with the white loading dots like normal. After a while I get a black screen with what looks like diagnostic text on it. It reads
"* Starting tor daemon... [OK]
(something about a service called saned disabled)
* Checking battery state... [OK]"
A picture of the screen is attached. I've done the sudo startx /usr/bin/unity thing to get access to my desktop, if that helps anything.
Server 13.04 x64 GUI
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 31, 2013
Good afternoon all
I am currently downloading the ISO for Ubuntu Server 13.04 x64, to be installed on a new machine.
This replaces an old P4 that ran Desktop x32.
The purpose of the system is an office server that will run as a development platform for websites (Apache, MySQL, PHP).
It will also act as a file server, and synchronise to a DropBox account. This will also connect to a shared printer and scanner.
I know the whole debate over a server GUI, and have done a lot of searching and reading on this matter.
As all of this is maintained by me alone, a GUI is a lot simpler. I do the usual house-keeping via a remote terminal, but for soem tasks, a I find a GUI easier and quicker (and probably the only way the scanner will work).
Everyone suggest installing a desktop system once everything is up and running, but I have also read in a few places that doing so will change the kernel from the server version to the desktop version?
Is this correct? What is the best desktop to use with
GUI completely gone after updating ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2013
Hi, I'm new to ubuntu so I need a little help. I've dual booted using wubi and installed ubuntu 12.04, 64 bit. Since then I installed lubuntu-desktop and I really like it. Everything has been working fine for a while. Every now and then I'm prompted to update packages for security reasons etc, and I usually just install all the updates. The latest set seems to have knackered my GUI and I can't get it back. After the update it just starts a text-based login instead of the graphical one. I'm sure some of the updates were to x-server and Xorg but I don't know enough about ubuntu to know if that is relevant!
I've tried googling around for a solution, and other people suggest to do 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get upgrade' which I've done without achieving anything. I still can't start lightdm: if i do 'sudo start lightdm' or 'sudo service lightdm restart' I just get a screen with a bunch of statements, the last 3 of which are:
stopping system V run level compatibility [ OK ]

MySpotIsHot Ubuntu AP GUI app
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2013
Hello, I've written an application that controls hostapd to setup an Access Point. Runs with gtkdialog. I tested it only on Ubuntu 13.04 for the time being.
It's still a beta version and dunno if it works for everybody, for me it does, so any feedback would be appreciated
Anybody willing to test it, here it is:
subversion autoconf libgtk2.0-dev bison dnsmasq hostapd iw gksu
Also needs gtkdialog
Should also compile and install everything with an autoinstall script that downloads needed packeges, compiles and installs gtkdialog, since it isn't in the repositories anymore, makes an executable command (myspotishot) and a gnome menu item (pkexec myspotishot - adds policy):
curl https://raw.github.com/Krofek/MySpotIsHot/master/installgui.sh -L > installgui.sh && chmod +x installgui.sh && ./installgui.sh
It looks like this:
I hope i posted this in the right section.

A GUI to edit unity launchers?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2012
Are there plans this cycle or a future cycle of a GUI to edit unity launchers?
In gnome 2.x (and now MATE) you could use say alacarte to edit menu items easily to add you own additional commands to the launchers.
Unity has nothing like it.
Any plans for one?
In my eyes it's one of the most annoying drawbacks of Unity at the moment.
Gui for Single User Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2012
I setup an Ubuntu 10.04 server which has several developers on the box. I have been ask to add a gui to the server. Only one developer want the gui to start when she logs in(runlevel 2 with a GUI). I am used to seeing an /etc/inittab file which I cannot seem to find under this Ubuntu version. So once I get the GUI (lightdm/GNOME and etc.) installed, how do I set up just this user to have the GUI to load only for this one user and not the rest?
