So one day I am trying to fix an error and ran a command which removed a bunch of packages. Now my linux mint gloria boots up into command prompt only with no GUI. ?? Any ideas? I think Gnome might have been removed. Shouldn't have listened to that person in the forum obviously he tricked me.
The error was ISD Server Error Port 5800. it was coming up at every login.
Not in the least bit funny. It's happened to me too, though not quite as badly.
One of the few major bones I have to pick with Linux is package management (at least the ones I've used: yum, up2date, rpm). I can't see the logic behind the system trying to uninstall Package A, just because you're uninstalling all the packages that depend on Package A.
What method did you use to uninstall? You should have gotten a list of all packages (including the ones it added to "make your life easier").
can't remember the command I ran into XTerminal. When I try a startx after command login at boot, I get, "Xsession warning: xrdb command not found; X resources not merged."
then get a "bash: /usr/bin/mint-fortune: No such file or directory"
woops! I just had this distro how I wanted it too, with the packages and compiz settings... man the time wasted. and to top it off I'm on an old Windows 7 beta which will give you a BSOD after 2 hrs of use. Can't find my resume, can't get a job. It's a bad month or two.
