No X?

Did you install the Workstation or Server version of Ubuntu? The server version does not install X windows, IIRC.

There are 2 different CDs available from Ubuntu: the Desktop CD and the Server Install CD.

It sounds like you probably down-loaded and installed the Server Install CD.

However, the suggestion to install "ubuntu-desktop" sounds like a good one. (If you prefer KDE, install "kubuntu-desktop" instead.)

The only disadvantage to installing one of the "-desktop" packages, instead of fetching and installing the Desktop CD, is that you may have a bit of server software that you don't want, taking up space.

Good luck!

To help diagnose the problem, please do these commands in a terminal and post the results here:

Code:
cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager
ls -l $(which kdm) $(which gdm)
dpkg --list gdm kdm
grep -e '^(EE' -e '-->Device' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
