I installed the "Lubuntu Minimal Desktop" via the 13.10 mini.iso CD image. That means, I should get the basic Lubuntu Desktop without all the programs.
After the installation is finished the system reboots and I am presented with the (graphical, not command line) login screen. However, after I enter the password and hit Enter, nothing happens. The Login box disappears, the wallpaper stays the same, and I get no desktop.
I can still move the mouse around and use Ctrl+F1 to log into the console.
I tried both the 32 bit and 64 bit CD images, as well as installing them on real hardware and in a VM. Every time with the same result.
I followed this guide.
Is the "Lubuntu Minimal Desktop" option broken?
