Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I had a problem precisely described here: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/01/ubuntu-lightdm-black-screen-when-using.html, black screen with blinking cursor instead of login screen. I've switched to gdm using sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm -- but faced the same problem, now loading process stops on "red-white Ubuntu dots" (without activity under this splash). And to login, I still need to restart display manager: Ctrl+Alt+F1 and sudo service gdm restart.

How to make Ubuntu to boot normally?

What graphics card and drivers are you using? The main reason this hasn't been answered is that its missing significant detail. –  Andy Jun 27 '13 at 15:41
    
@Andy Radeon HD 5670. X.org drivers or fglrx-updates -- no difference. –  leventov Jun 27 '13 at 15:55
    
Are you using any proprietory drivers? You may want to disable those. –  Dillmo Jun 29 '13 at 13:10
    
If you can re-install x server: sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg , sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg , sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg –  bob Jul 1 '13 at 13:57
