i am currently working over a serial-console (from desktop computer to a developing board)... i tried switching between this three visual alternatives: unity, gnome and recovery console (using the board devices, not serial-console)... they worked perfectly... but for some reason, my keyboard stopped working on the board just when i switched to recovery console, and the only way to control the device is through the desktop serial-console...
does anyone know how to go back to gnome or unity from serial-console? i tried gnome-shell --replace and unity --replace but:
Window manager error: Unable to open X display
** (gnome-shell:6053): WARNING **: Command line `dbus-launch --autolaunch=b6a0f5be3cacff6ccdea054a00000008 --binary-syntax --close-stderr' exited with non-zero exit status 1: Autolaunch error: X11 initialization failed.\n
... so any ideas??
