I recently installed a 12.04 from an existing installation using the command 'dd'. The first time I booted it, I did see the desktop environment. However, consequently I've only been able to boot to command line.
I ran the boot-repair utility from a live USB and here is the output: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1274785/
So I'm trying to put Arch Linux on my desktop, which I've done plenty of times before, but now for some reason everytime I try to boot the 64-bit installer on a disc or USB it restarts just after showing "Loading boot/x86_64/archiso.img . . .". I've tried older versions and all the command line options the wiki lists to no avail.
I am 100% completely new to linux, and CLI's. I have a new laptop which I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on to. I hated the desktop environment, as it gave me very few system configuration options from the GUI, and Im not ready to delve into the command line.
How do I boot Ubuntu by default into the CLI using a multiuser runlevel? I wish to still maintain my graphical desktop manager (GDM or whatever replaced it) since I do use that to switch between Unity and Awesome WM. I do however wish to boot by default into a CLI login shell. I could then startx to start my GUI if I need it.
Hi, I'm installing 12.04 on a new machine. I've been using 8.04. In 8.04 I accessed my windows manager (either gnome or fvwm) from the command line, using startx. In this setup I was able to set a number of environment variables, which were utilized in my startup script. But 12.04 boots to a GUI, which is nice, but I can't set my environment variables.
