Here is the problem that I am haveing. When I log in using Gnome w/ cairo dock I get a blank screen and a mouse cursor. I can not right click or anything. I hit alt f2 and it brings up the tty term. I try to issue cinnamon or compiz or any other manager and it just says that x has no display or something similar. I then have to issue sudo service mdm restart and it brings me back to the login screen.
Then I can login to cinnamon with cairo dock running with no problem. Any help would be appreciated.. Thanks in advance.
