I have 2 desktop environments installed, i'm using the x-swat version of nvidia drivers which also got upgraded after doing "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade". Now i can only log-in using the terminal. tried "sudo service lightdm restart", that command seemed to work but gets stuck at the "*checking battery state".
to make matters worse, i can only connect to the internet by tethering my laptop with/to my android phone (sony ericsson xperia arc lt15i) and i don't know what commands to use to do same using the terminal so any solution that would require a working internet connection just makes me think that it would probably be easier just to reinstall OS and just stick to the nouveau drivers.
I have been an ubuntu user for quite some time now (since 9.04) but I must admit that i am still a noob when it comes to terminal commands.
i miss the penguin, help me!
