X.org reinstalled, diagnosed problem - VMware incompatability
Thanks Binary, the re-install helped, I notice apt-get saying 2 files to be downloaded. Mdetect and Xserver I think were missing! But it hasn't solved the problem if you check that link and scroll to the last screenshot you'll see what "sudo Xorg" came up with. Turns out, the dapper version I installed does not have VMware support. I downloaded a version of Kubuntu for VMware so will try that out. Thanks.
A note you those with VMware problems, Distributions running under VMware can have software added, but upgrading the distribution, in my case broke the system. The new files overwrite old config files, and the VM-support modules for mouse and display are outdated, obsolete, and therefore cease to function. Solution, for newbies, stick to the original, update software by all means but leave the base system as is. Or go to VMware's website and download a newer version. If anyone knows where the development of Open Source VMware distributions and so on occur, I would be very interested. Links? Ta guys.
