Welcome to my profile. Just a heads up I'm not a registered user. Some basic yet useful information is included below for no particular reason.

Make a VMware Player virtual machine use uefi instead of bios:

  1. Browse to the vm folder and edit it's ".vmx" file so that it has an added line reading " fireware = "efi" ".

Install an application:

  1. Open terminal and type "sudo apt-get install application-name".

Update your apt list:

  1. Open terminal and type "sudo apt-get update".

Uninstall an applicaton:

  1. Open terminal and type "sudo apt-get purge application-name".

Set KDM as your default desktop manager:

  1. Open terminal and type "sudo dpkg-reconfigure kdm".

Open a .bundle file in terminal:

  1. Open terminal and type "sudo sh /home/username/Downloads/example.bundle".

Enable logging in as root in KDE4:

  1. Open terminal and type "sudo passwd root".

  2. Enter the password you want for root.

  3. Open terminal and type "sudo kate /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc".

  4. In Kate edit "AllowRootLogin=false" to read "AllowRootLogin=true".

  5. Reboot your computer.

"sudo nano /etc/default/grub", one of the lines should read: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" . Verify it says this. Press "control + x" to exit after.

If it's driver related then It's beyond my expertise. Once you've logged in in text mode you said that you are able to startx? instead try loging in and using "sudo start lightdm" this should force open the login screen.

How is this advice? There are 2 reasons for logging in in text mode. the first is you don't have a DM which my answer solves. The second is you configured grub to load the os in text only mode which the OP didn't mention doing.

"sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm" this will make you choose a default desktop manager. I'm just thinking perhaps you have 2 installed.

Is this an Ubuntu or Xubuntu installation?

I don't know what an "OP" is, but I gave instructions for logging in and I'm not sure if that portion worked. I'm trying to figure exactly which part of my instructions aren't working.
