comment how to limit resources to a shared ubuntu 10.04
@black sensei Sorry for the delay, 2 things 1)dit you prepend sudo to your command. I think your still supposed to. 2) your probably supposed to add the exact command: /etc/init.d/tomcat_instance_1 start

comment How do I resolve desktop larger than screen?
Would you mind posting an (anonimized?) screenshot, it will show the show the Desktop area. AFAIK tt should contain dark regions for the unused areas. This will surely help the readers of your question to understand the problem more fully. Also, Why is there a vertical offset of 261 anyway? :-D

comment Blank screen after rebooting the computer. How to boot to command prompt to fix the problem?
You are right it shouldn't be so difficult to get into the commandprompt but it seems the machine is just left without any kind of display output. What you could try... if everything is setup in your network correctly, is to reach the machine via ssh. (I'm not sure if you set this up already) that is definetly easier than the live cd and would allow you acces to the commandline.

Ok, well server iso does not contain live-cd features. Also I'm not saying that what you want is impossible. (installing server, moving to desktop, and upgrading) But I would advise a to make it easier on yourself: clean installation 13.10 Desktop edition.

Do you remmeber which iso you downloaded? it should say desktop (either ubuntu-version-desktop-amd64.iso OR ubuntu-version-desktop-x86.iso) The alternate installation cd does not support this.

comment German special characters on US/Hebrew keyboard
The behaviour of these key combination is mostly governed by your keyboard settings. These can be found under "system settings >> keyboard >> layout settings". Could it be that this setting is currently different? I'm not familiar with the German settings but there is for instance a big difference between Enlgish (US) and English (US, international with dead keys)

If I understand you correctly you have no control about Ubuntu whatsoever any more. I guess you could try these steps combined with the suggestions about fixing your driver: article about editing Ubuntu from a live cd. If you don't have much time invested in this installation, you might be quicker of doing a reinstall though.

Which part didn't work? Are you unable to get to tty1 or to install anything? What result do you see?

In my experience sudo nvidia-settings can often be a better way to edit these settings.

Is it possible to enter open tty1 (ctrl + alt + F1) ? If so you can use the advice given here: link
