alex57 I updated from a fine working 12.04 LTS to 12.10 on an old computer and now I can only boot in recovery mode, startx fails. If I try to boot normally I end up with a screen that changes between black, purple and light purple. What can I do to get the GUI back ?04:33
Unit193You can try and see if nomodeset helps.04:34
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter04:34
alex57from a command prompt, how would I check nomodeset ?04:37
holsteinalex57: you would do it from boot, as the guide suggests.. from grub04:38
alex57now the tricky part is how to get to the grub menu...04:41
holsteinalex57: tap shift at boot, and you should be able to enter it there04:43
holsteini usually try it from a live CD, but im a "look before you leap" kind of guy.. and i *never* do distibution upgrades, except to test the path04:43
alex57i can briefly see some grub stuff but it soon changes into the list of bootable OSes on the system04:44
holsteinalex57: you can manually edit that if needed via a live CD04:46
holsteinalex57: you should be albe to tap shift, and see the grub menu, that allows you to follow above..04:46
alex57okay I just noticed the 'c' option in the list of OSes, and now I am at the grub prompt04:46
alex57the 'e' option lets me edit an entry. SO shall I add nomodeset ?04:50
holsteinalex57: i would read above, and enter the options exactly as stated.. i do it via live CD, so i dont know them off the top of my head, though, if you need me to look at  the link Unit193 gave you, i can04:50
Unit193e is it, find "nosplash" and it should go around there. Ctrl+x boots, IIRC.04:52
alex57I will try from a live CD as well...04:55
alex57holstein: if I do it from a live CD the setting would apply only to the liveCD session, right ?05:02
alex57I edited the grub entry for Ubuntu 12.10, inserted a new line with just 'nomodeset' rebooted, but the GUI wouldn't start up. Upon rebooting again, the line that I added was missing...05:12
Unit193Yes, you are editing the boot options one time, if you reboot rather than boot from there, nogo.05:37
alex57If that's the case, adding nomodeset didn't seem to help. In the meantime I located my grub configuration file, according to http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/07/how-to-find-where-grub-is-installed-in-ubuntu/ and added nomodeset after quiet, however I still have the same problem: after rebooting and seeing briefly a Lubuntu 12.10 light blue screen, it starts cycling a black screen, then purple, then light purple, forever...05:47
alex57How can I check if any driver is missing ?06:07
alex57I am still unable to boot into a desktop manager07:54
iccthedralI'm having problems with the 13.04 lubuntu on two of my machines. I've installed it from Live-USB and it all goes fine, I'm in my shell, feeling comfortable, aptgetting emacs but it stops with the message that I have unmet dependencies.11:46
iccthedralNormally, I tried apt-get install -f, doesn't work.11:47
iccthedralThen I tried many weird solutions that I stumbled on the web, nothing helped at all.11:47
iccthedralIs anyone having similar problems?11:47

malaphusAnyone know where 13.04 keeps the lightdm theme XML?  12.10, I believe, was in /usr/share/lightdm-gtk-greeter/greeter.ui but 13.04 doesn't seem to have that15:54
Unit193malaphus: That file doesn't exist in lubuntu-artwork-13.04 for lightdm, only lxdm.  lightdm-gtk-greeter also doesn't have it, and locate didn't find anything with lightdm or greeter in the name other than the LXDM one.18:11
