I am running off a live CD as my Ubuntu 12.04 build cant load the desktop. Reading around I thought it was an issue with my nvidia drivers so I have reinstalled them. lightdm looks like its loading correctly no problem, when I turn it on it takes me directly to tty1 rather than the desktop - like it usually does.

My log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) is:

Any tips would be very kind. I am at a loss, google seems to have people who have had similar issues, but they have solved them by deleting X11.conf and regenerating it. That didnt seem to work for me...
