This question already has an answer here:
I am new to Ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu 16.04 alongside Ubuntu 14.04 on a computer that natively ran Window (essentially triple boot). After installing, I am able to login into 16.04 with my username but after that I am stuck with a blank purple screen. I have spent many hours already and read through many forums without any help. I even reinstalled Ubuntu many times. I have already tried CTRL+ALT+F4 to use terminal for functions like sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade.
Here is some details I think might be helpful.

I tried running "env | grep DESK" but it didn't work. Any help in getting 16.04 working properly would be greatly appreciated.
