I am attempting to replace the Ubuntu 12.04 I have on my laptop with Xubuntu 12.04. I formatted my linux partition and started with a fresh install of Xubuntu but both booting live from the CD or from the Xubuntu I have installed will launch me straight into the command line.
startx gives an error of
no screen found. I have searched through this site and found several similar issues posted but attempting to delete the
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file as suggested on one forum thread did nothing (my system lacks this file completely), and I'm embarrassed to say, I didn't really understand what the heck any of the other fixes were saying.
Note that I could install normal Ubuntu with no problem, this issue only occurs for Xubuntu.
