I've been an Ubuntu user since Dapper and Ubuntu has been my only or main OS since Lucid. My PC is not powerful enough to run Unity so I use Gnome Classic and since Precise I've started fiddling with LXDE too. My favourite release thus far is Maverick though Precise built up from a minimum install with LXDE is a close second.

A very big thank you to all who contribute to Ubuntu.

Before Ubuntu (and during) I often fiddle with Fedora and I've sampled a few other distros. My first Linux use was in the late 90s with Red Hat and then Suse.

Thanks, I was just about to try Handbrake which I have used before but find a bit complicated when I tried the VLC method described below.

comment How to restore Ubuntu login screen after lubuntu install?
lightDM.conf was empty so I opened it sudo gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and added this: [SeatDefaults] greeter-session=unity-greeter user-session=ubuntu Sorry but not for a lack of trying and despite reading (askubuntu.com/editing-help#comment-formatting) I am unable to format the comment - it should be on 3 lines. I then removed lightdm sudo apt-get purge lightdm and reinstalled it sudo apt-get install lightdm and after rebooting it worked. What a drama! And a waste of 2 hours of my life!

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm worked after I installed gdm.

I don't know why this has been voted down. I know it is not an ideal solution but it is the easiest solution I have found to date and thought it worth sharing for those like me with an iPhone and no easy way to sync with it. Running iTunes in OSX or Windows in a virtual environment or rebooting to OSX or Windows are surely worse. What else is there?
