I made a fresh 'easy install' of 12.04 on vmware workstation.
This is yet another problem (quite a few have been asked here.) with the vmware tools installation. I managed to install vmware tools manually. But I still end up at the terminal with a message -
I have managed to change the default runlevel to 5 and have made sure that X11 common and lightdm are started at runlevel 5 (Used sysv-rc-conf & checkconfig). When I login, I am at runlevel 5, but
lightdm or X server are not in the
ps aux list.
What am I missing? how do I get rid of this message and start the graphical login manager?
PS: I installed a GB of other apps by logging in and really wanted to salvage it over reinstalling.
