I've just done a clean install from a dvd to an old computer I had lying around. The install went fine and I had initially setup the system to use UI1 (I'm using onboard video for the moment). I was able to view and use the menu system just fine. Then I wanted to see if the system could run the UI2 interface. The test button did absolutely nothing for all three UIs (it was just a black screen) so I just chose UI2 to see if it would work. Now when the system boots up I see the menu's for 1 second before being dumped to the terminal. I have tried searching the forums and the web to figure out if I can somehow use the terminal to navigate to a place where I can change the UI choice.
Can I initiate the launch manager from the terminal?
Is that even what I need to try to do?
As a side question, can I get to the Kubuntu desktop from the terminal? would that in anyway help my situation?
help. . .please. . .
