I have ubuntu and i finally updated via command line and everytime I do startx all that comes up is the backgroud .
As the title above, I am totally new to Linux. What I have now is a virtual hardisk with ubuntu and it started up as CLI. What I want to do is enable the graphic mode and able to switch it flexibly.
So, I wanted to install ubuntu-desktop due to the fact that Ubuntu only started in terminal mode and I couldn't get startx command to run too.
I used the mini.iso to install ubuntu 14.04 and opted to go with Lubuntu destkop while installing.
