http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi there. I've been trying to produce my own linux thing. Therefore i used minimalCD, installed it with the bare minimum and, from there, started to build the "distro" if you allow me to say so. Now, I got to a point where i want to add a GUI to it, and that that GUI gets initiated automatically, but i can't seem to get it working. I thought I only needed to sudo apt-get install "chosen gui", reboot and that's it. Wrong. I tried Enlightenment and Fluxbox and i could only go to the GUI after a startx in the command prompt. What am i missing? (ubuntu desktop is a no go s (Hardware)
