Loging in has now become like like a konsole


when I turn on the ocmputer, the log in screen becomes a konsole type log in ,and I can't seem to get it back to the usuall log in screen where i ca visit my desktop. How do I make it so I can get back to my desktop?

What distro are you using? Did you do anything that led to this situation? Try login as usual and then type "startx" (without quotes). This will start a regular xsession.

It looks like your X configuration got screwed up (X is the graphical environment for *nix systems). Can you look for for the error messages (lines starting with (EE)) when you type startx and post them. It would really help if you told us which distribution you're using as they use different versions of X and have their own tools for configuring it.

Sounds like you were reconfiguring your X but bailed out before it could write a good config file )ctrl+alt+backspace kills the X server rather uncleanly, it's generally for emergency use only). I'd suggest you follow the directions on [URL=http://www.pclinuxonline.com/wiki/ChangingHardware]this PCLinuxOS Wiki entry[/URL[ (see the section "Changing your graphics card" -- since you need to recreate your config you should just go through the configuration again as this section describes).
