My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?
In an attempt to uninstall gnome, I followed the following instructions and was left with a black screen.
Press CTRL+ALT+F1 to access the terminal window and log in. At the prompt type following commands:
sudo apt-get remove libgtk-3-common
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install gnome-panel
sudo shutdown –r now
I can login from the tty1 screen after pressing ctrl alt f1 but it stays in the terminal screen. I can also do the "startx" command and I get to a blank desktop that only lets me open a new folder.
I have been researching for almost 4 days and haven't been able to resolve this issue.
Is there any way i can restore my login screen?
