I have installed Xubuntu 12.04 on my old computer recently and it worked fine for several days but now I have a big problem. I was in the process of installing a program and in the same time browsing the internet when the system somehow stopped responding. It crashed (i.e. froze) for a rather long time. I got annoyed (which was really stupid) and restarted but it didn't get to the log in screen. So I pressed the turn on button and held it for a while which turned everything off. Then I turned the computer on again but it didn't get to the log in screen. I restarted a couple of times but with no effect. Apparently Xubuntu is not that robust as Windows. Now I am using the live CD to browse the internet and search for help. Does anyone know a solution to my problem?
Ok boot your computer to login screen and then type as CTRL + ALT + F1
login there with your username and password . Then run this command
hope that helps .
