I am new to Ubuntu and have installed the 12.10 in VM on my laptop. I've installed the Vmware tools as well. However, the VM boots to the command-line. A few questions:
- What are the choices of desktops in 12.10?
- How does one start and stop all the various desktop GUI choices like xdm, kdm, gnome etc?
Within the context of the current terminal session that I have open. I want to try them all before making them one of them permanent via a startup init script.
I've tried xdm but other than Terminal and Nautilus, I can't seem to find a menu that will allow me to view and start all the various applications. Where do I find the equivalent of windows 'start' menu in the xdm desktop (and in other desktops)?
