I followed the instructions at this site to get pure Lubuntu. Unfortunately, after doing so my computer will no longer boot into the GUI. I'm able to switch over to a terminal just fine, but the GUI never comes up. The computer boots past the Lubuntu splash screen and then displays:
apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName * Starting web server apache2 etc/rc2.d/S99acpi-support: line 7: /usr/share/acpi-support/power-funcs: No such file or directory
It seems to be stuck there. Yesterday, I let the computer run for 24 hours. When I came back, the whole screen was full of code. I didn't catch any of it though.
I attempted to restart from a Live USB, but the computer wouldn't even recognize it. I tried it in every port but I can't get it to show up on the boot menu.
I was able to Ctrl+Alt+F6 to a terminal. I tried:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install --reinstall lubuntu-desktop
I also tried
sudo apt-get install -f.
None of this helped. Now it's just back to the aforementioned apache2 error message.
Another oddity: I can reboot the computer from the terminal using
sudo reboot but when I attempt
sudo shutdown now it pumps out a ton of error messages, switches to single user mode, and waits for a command.
How can I get my GUI back?
I realized that I was stupidly trying to boot a computer with UEFI using an x86 USB. It boots from a live USB using the 64-bit live USB.
