Ubuntu upgrade to 11.04 GUI not working
 
I am a relative neophite with Linux but have been running 10.10 for 6-7 months now and been happy with it. I did the upgrade to 11.04 today and I can't use the GUI. Apache2 and Php seem to be running fine and I can login but then nothing happens. I have seen a few posts that recommend a few things at the command line, but I don't know how to get to a command line other than through the applications menu in the GUI. Anyone have any ideas?

When you get to your boot menu use the "recovery" entry to boot with. This will take you to a text login.

Enter user name.
Enter password.
Enter;
Code:

sudo su
Enter password.

You are now at a full root console. Have FUN.

Thank you widget, what finally got me to the boot menu was to hold the "shift key" down while the system is booting. From there I was able to choose recovery.
