Having all sorts of issues with mini.iso, thought it'd save me some time downloading (slow internet) but I simple don't know what packages I need to get.
Anyways, my issue right now is logging into my desktop. I have the unity version of Ubuntu 13.04 desktop. I had to manually grab xorg and xserver and lightdm, which 'works', but I can not log into the comp. What happens is the login screen after accepting my password, will just refresh and ask me to login again.
I can log in in terminal (ctrl+alt+f1), but
startx does not work. I get a window popup stating 'failed to load session gnome'. I don't think I have this package, and I can get it installed, but before I attempt it wanted to make sure gnome is required here (dumb question sorry) as it's a 500mb download and will take me a few hours to get.
I feel like I'm going to just grab the normal .iso for 13.04 and go that route because I simply don't' know enough.
This happened the last attempt I tried on this machine, except I was using Kubuntu instead of unity.
