Question ubuntu gui problem


Hi,

I recently installed ubuntu operating system on my system. After the installation was completed, I could not get into the GUI mode after logging in.
Instead I was there on the screen that looked more or less like a command prompt console window in Windows Operating system(or alternatively like the linux mint 10 terminal console window).

What could be the possible reason for such a thing. Kindly help me.

With Regards,
Upendra Pratap Singh

Did you install a desktop (gnome, kde...)
What happens if you login at the command prompt and type
Code:
startx
Kind regards
