Not entirely sure what you mean by 'configure the interface'. Sorry for the noobiness; been raised as a Windows user my entire life.
But I'll make sure to run that when I can get to the office in the morning.

ok, for some reason you have a Debian entries in your sources. You are running Mint 17, not Debian testing- this is likely the cause of your problems. Do you know why there are Debian entries there?
You need to look in /etc/apt/sources.list. You should edit that file and either remove the Debian lines or comment them out by putting a # at the start of the line. If is is not in that file look for it in any files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory. After removing it run "apt-get update" again. If that returns no errors run the following and post the output.
[SOLVED] Black screen w/cursor after login, Cinnamon desktop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 31, 2014
I recently (about two weeks ago) installed Linux Mint 17 (32 bit) on an old Dell Inspiron E1405, and it's worked without issue (except some errors with my Broadcom WiFi card, but that's to be expected).
The thing is that I closed my laptop last night (it wasn't bugging out, I was just going to bed) and about maybe two hours ago, I opened the laptop to use GIMP. I hadn't shut the laptop down, and the clock screen showed up normally. However, after mouse movement, the login box didn't appear. I waited maybe ten minutes, but nothing loaded so I shut down the laptop.
It worked normally on reboot up until the login screen. I logged in as usual and the screen that was supposed to be my desktop was simply a black screen with a movable cursor.
After pressing Ctrl + Alt + Fx, it took me to terminal. I logged in fine and tried several commands to no avail, including:
[SOLVED] Black screen after booting Ubuntu 11.10 from USB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2012
I'm trying to install ubuntu 11.10 x64 onto my laptop and replace windows. I saved the ubuntu 11.10 DVD iso to my fat32 USB stick and ran the Universal USB installer. I resarted my computer and hit esc then F9 to access the boot menu. From there I was able to boot from my USB. Next, a black menu screen with grey font appeared.
It had 5 or 6 different options to select from, including: Run ubuntu from usb; install ubuntu to hard disk; advanced options; and help. The first two options gave me the same issue. Everything appeared to be fine for about 5 seconds but after many strings of code had appeared on the screen, it flashed once and went completely black. However, I was surprised to hear "chimes" or something (seemingly implying some measure of success) only moments after the screen had gone black. Each time I was forced to restart because I had no idea what was going on with the screen black and all.
Here are my specs:
2.5GHz AMD Dual-Core A4-3305M Accelerated, 6GB
[SOLVED] Black screen after logout in SlackwareCurrent

After updating my Slackware-Current (there was kernel and glibc package updates), I just get a black screen with a blinking "_" in the top-left corner when I logout.
I checked /var/log/kdm.log and found these errors:

[SOLVED] Black screen after installed xorgdriverfglrx 8.3 with ATi X1950 pro
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2008
I have downloaded and installed the final version of Hardy today.
When I enabled the xorg-driver-fglrx with the hardware-manager, after restart I got black screen with total freeze, just the reboot help.
I have an ATi X1950 PRO, 512 MB, 8x AGP.
In previous Hardy versions was the same problem. I tried many ways to install the ATi driver: Envy, official ATi driver, many trying in xorg.conf, many system reinstall, without success.
Now in a final Hardy with a new installation it's also dud.
I disabled compiz in xorg.conf, but not helped, I think it is an fglrx problem.
When Ubuntu 7.10 released I installed it and worked fine. I just enabled restricted driver, installed xserver-xgl and worked, also compiz-fusion.
In Hardy it's total craze!
I'm waiting for the possible solutions...
I attached xorg.conf, and Xorg.0.log
Thanks any help!

[SOLVED] Black screen after using hot HDMI cable. Graphics card broken?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 26, 2013
This morning, I accidentally plugged an HDMI cable into my (powered off) Dell Inspiron 1525 that already carried a signal (i.e. voltage) on it (coming as the output from a media server box).
When I then booted the Inspiron, the screen remained black. I just cannot get it to work again. I've tried using an external monitor via an HDMI and a VGA cable, but in both cases, the monitor always says "no signal". I have also pressed Fn+CRT/LCD several times, which did not help either.
When I boot the 1525, it runs for 5 seconds (with a blank screen), then it powers off (all LEDs go out and the cooler calms down). But then, after 5 seconds more, it powers on again (!) and stays powered on, cooler running, with a damn blank screen.
There are no beep-codes while the 1525 is booting.
I suppose that my graphics card is broken. If so, how can I test it to be sure? If not, what can I do to reactivate the screen?
Thank you in advance,
[SOLVED] Black screen after Chrome update on 14.04 LTS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 10, 2015
It's now nearly a year since I switched to Ubuntu (14.04) as my mainstay OS on 3 ThinkPads. Lots of learning through minor disasters this year - all worth it. New minor disaster:
Pulled out one dual-boot X60 to update software on both sides of partition (Win7). Ran sudo update, then sudo upgrade. I'm still a newbie...maybe this wasn't the thing to do? All seemed ok...
My version of Chrome was no longer supported - downloaded the .deb file from Chrome's home base and used Software Center to install (which has worked in the past).
All seemed well until the box awoke from sleep - now I only get black screen on Chrome. Reinstalling (first using Software Center, then terminal) didn't change anything. Firefox works fine.
Searching the forums, I haven't found a single definitive answer. I can't uncheck hardware acceleration on Settings because ... the Settings page is blacked out. I understand Nvidia drivers can be an issue.
