I tried to install kubuntu last night - it eas successfully found and appeared to install. However when the system re-booted, it came up with a Blue/Green GUI lapp login screen wanting a User Login and ID. The only login and id that was set up was the one created (root) when the LAPP appliance was installed.
I found where/how to add another user using Webmin and did so. However I still could not get past the GUI login screen. I got an error kstartupconfig4 does not exist or failed. The error code is 3. Check your install
So, I uninstalled --purge and proceeded to install the ubuntu-desktop. With Ubuntu desktop, I got the same login page and after several re-boots, got it to accept a login, but I get errors
"Could not update the ICEauthority file /home/.ICEauthority"
"There is a problem with the configuration server. (/usr/lib/libconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with a status of 256)"
"Nautilus could not create the following required folders: /home/Desktop, /home/.nautilus Before running nautilus please create these folders, or set permissions such that Nautilus can create them"
I get the background for the Ubuntu Desktop, but nothing else. Cntr Alt Del give a shutdown window.
Can anyone tell me how to get a GUI running correctly? I am a newbie at Linux but Google is my friend as are forums such as this! Any suggestions would be appreciated! I would prefer to use kubtunu desktop BTW.
