I am currently trying to boot up Ubuntu 13.04. Whenever I boot it up though, I get a console-like screen that says this:

Welcome to Ubuntu 13.04 (GNU/Linux 3.8.0-19-generic x86_64)

*Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/


I would like to know what to type in here

did you install a desktop ubuntu version? I recall server version does not starts as default with the "console-like screen" –  user218144 Nov 21 '13 at 22:35
