Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I just assembled a computer from store bought pieces with the intention of putting Ubuntu 10.10 on it. In hindsight, I probably should have just burned a 10.10 cd and installed from that, but I installed from a 10.04 cd and used the upgrade manager to upgrade it.

Before and during the upgrade, everything ran smoothly. I got to the end and it said please restart to complete the upgrade. I did, and when it booted back up, it went straight to the console login!

Any ideas what may have happened and how I can fix it?

Bash is nice and all, but I want my desktop back!

my first idea would be to try restarting again... if you haven't done that... –  da Boss Apr 25 '11 at 2:43
@TheX: That was my first idea also. –  John Apr 25 '11 at 2:58
