i did a bad thing and tried to adjust my video card settings, while doing this, i was asked the question about starting xorg when the computer boots up.... i almost cried, everytime i see that question, regardless of my response, i end up with a command prompt only, my gui go byebye.. so i thought i'd outsmart it by clicking the "x" box to make it go away, but upon rebooting, i discovered that my efforts to avoid the inevitable were futile
the other 30 times this has happened i just ended up re-installing linux after hours of searching the net trying to find out how to get back into my gui and fix it, but this time, damnit, i've done a lot of work and actually gotten quite a few things working, so i'd really much rather not have to wipe everything to get my gui back. so, my question is, does anyone know the command to make the gui start and, also, how to make the gui come on as default everytime i boot up.
