Steps are here Make sure that you create /swapfile of the size smaller than the available space shown by df -h For example for me output of df- h was: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/xvda1 7.8G 1.2G 6.3G 16% / none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/...

To switch between monitors, I use xrandr. A nice GUI for xrandr is ARandR, which is in the repos as well. An example xrandr command would look like this:xrandr --output DisplayPort-1 --off --output DisplayPort-0 --off --output DVI-0 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output HDMI-0 --off In this case, I would only use the DVI-0 port to display my ...

a user in other more active forum suggested me this, I'm adding it to give more insight: startx will not work in 16.04 which uses systemd, not upstart, but you may get somewhere by using command Code: sudo service lightdm start However, that does not really help us to figure out what has happened and why you no longer boot to a desktop. ...
