I installed the updates (as normal) on my Ubuntu 12.04 distribution this morning, restarted and now stuck in tty1. I cannot log into the GUI desktop.
I have gathered that
- X11 initilization failed
- No D-Bus daemon running
- Compiz (core) - FATAL: Couldn't open display :0
I have spent the last few hours reading other forum posts and have removed the .Xauthority file (as I think I login in the root group (does that make sense?)).
I am currently trying to chown a dbus file but don't seem to be able to find it...! Eg:
chown -R rob:rob ~/dbus
I have tried to restart lightdm but without dbus running I am stuck.
I have tried switching to tty2, tty6, tty7 etc - still don't get normal GUI.
Any suggestions as to what I should do? Any information I can provide to help?
