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

At start up on entering password, it says sorry no Ubuntu. There are three options at the login recovery console , Ubuntu 2D and user defined login. When I go to Ubuntu 2D it says Ubuntu 2D not available. I can go to the recovery console, but after trying apt-get install, reinstall , apt-get, configure etc. When I exit it again comes to login screen So basically I am now toggling between login screen and recovery console. I have already run through the recovery mode at boot did the repair clean and all options in the recovery mode. Still this is the continuing situation. Can somebody guide me please? I am relatively new to Ubuntu but am interested in using it.

What programs did you uninstall exactly? Did it work before? Have you tried to reinstall the packages you removed? (apt-get reinstall is not a valid command, apt-get configure neither) –  mondjunge Oct 18 '13 at 8:59
Thanks for the attention. I am not sure what all .I thought i wold be notified before something serious is removed .Appears that didnt happen. –  N.C.Panicker Oct 19 '13 at 1:15
For many linux people, a graphical UI is nothing serious, but something to play around with ;) Maybe try to reinstall unity desktop with sudo apt-get install unity unity-2d –  mondjunge Oct 21 '13 at 9:40
