looks good. You've installed and logged in. What exactly is the problem?


PS. Backtrack is an obsolete/unsupported distro. You should not be using it.

Backtrack is no longer supported so you should install Kali which is the newer version. Also you probably didn't get the desktop because you can't get packages for something that is unsupported.
