I'm quite new to Linux but wanted to try out the LinuxMCE system as it looked quite fantastic in the instruction video. I also checked an old one that was really cool.
Just to try it out i installed it on a virtual machine on a VMware workstation desktop computer. The installation went well. I didn't have much hardware to install but the installation program seemed to install what was necessary.
After installation was done and I restarted the virtual computer all seemed to start fine. I even got to see the GUI. However the startup continues and the gui dissapear. I get stuck with a command window where I need to login on the dcerouter. I'm able to login with my linuxmce account but what do I do next?
How do I get the gui to start? Can I make it to start by default and don't close after a short while?
I'm desperate for help. Please someone help me.
Have you installed vmware tools?
If you havenīt do that and then restart.
Wmware tools will install modified X drivers to make X work in a virtual machine running inside a vmware vm.
