I am using VMWare workstation v 10.0.1 and installed Ubuntu 12.0.4 LTS. After installation, I could not see the Unity desktop screen but only text interface is shown to me. I decided to install the desktop interface (GUI) and did the below.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
sudo apt-get upgrade
Nothing happened but these command totally downloaded 2 Gigs of data. Finally I tried the below:
apt-get install unityInstallation seem to be completed but nothing changed
apt-get install ubuntu-desktopThis command downloaded 983 MB of data and installed. So to check whether I can able to access the Unity desktop, i tried to reboot the system using
sudo rebootbut in vain. It hung up at
STOPPING VIRTUAL PRINTING DAEMON. I had to manually power shutdown and restarted it. This time, i saw the Unity login screen but when I typed my username and passsword, it accepted my login for a while and then went to Text interface for a while and came back to Unity login screen. No matter how much time I tried, the same process is happening. It returns to the unity login screen. ( If i enter wrong password, it says invalid login,so I am filling the right password).
Between, from the Unity login screen, i use Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to Text interface or Ctrl+Alt+T for Switch to terminal which works but cannot login to the system from Unity login screen. Please help.
