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. The startx command ended up by open a CLI with white screen. Right now, I ran "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" but I dun know how to enable it or activate it.
Can anyone please kindly brief me about that? Between, my internet connection is bad, so that I wonder is there any alternative way in order to complete update or upgrade in this portion?
p/s: Currently my ubuntu ver is 12.04.1 and I dun think to have a clean install. Because I backup the ubuntu into virtual hardisk with some software well installed and also configured. The installers of those software are not with me. So what I can do is only troubleshooting or do some update or upgrade.
The snapshot on results of startx and Xorg.0.log attached as below:
