Also in the main gui window in the system tab there is no shutdown option directly just a log off option. so i have to log off again and have to shutdown in console... how can this be worked around??
Very simple fix.
From the console login as root first then do the following:
Once you are in the file, find the section that says:
Now you want to change the "3" to a "5".
Save the file and once you're back in the console, press alt + f7 and X11 should load. You can also reboot your PC but I suggest the first option.
And for your second question, nVidia drivers are better IMO.
