How to load graphical display manager when booting?

I have just upgrade to 11.10 from 10.04. I cannot see login screen on tty7. I can still login into tty 1-6. I have tried install gnome-shell from gnome3 ppa and gnome-panel but it doesn't help.

What should I do?

It was saying unrecognized service – Phương Nguyễn Jan 2 '12 at 13:22
when you said you upgraded from 10.04 to 11.10 - how did you do that? – fossfreedom Jan 2 '12 at 13:50
@jokerdino: Thanks man. Please make an answer then I will accept. – Phương Nguyễn Jan 2 '12 at 14:27
@fossfreedom: I first run cdromupgrade from alternate CD of 11.04 and then again run cdromupgrade from alternate CD of 11.10 – Phương Nguyễn Jan 2 '12 at 14:28

Try the following command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lightdm

to ensure that Lightdm is properly installed.
