I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my hard drive partition of 10 gb. I was uninstalling some software and after that this messages started coming up on a black full screen.

Asking for cache data failed
Assuming drive cache : write through

I restarted my machine and when I boot into Ubuntu this messages shows up. only command line is available. I can enter my username and password on the command line and the prompt appears.

user@user-pc$:

but the GUI doesn't shows up.

What to do? Please help.

  • I was uninstalling some software "some"? Please be specific. Like dit you uninstall the desktop software? (looks like it...). – Rinzwind Apr 8 '13 at 7:12

Sounds like you are using a server installation. If you deleted software and you also deleted the desktop you can re-install it with..

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

After you reboot you will see a desktop again.


This...

has nothing to do with it.
