Thread: X won't start

  1. #1

    Default X won't start

    I'm running version 10.3 with gnome, a clean install.

    Update manager ran and I left it to the updates came back to it and the screen had gone blank! Ok, no panic just wake it up with the mouse. No, all I saw was the odd flash of a mouse cursor on screen, through my annoyance I did the ctrl alt backspace. Big mistake! Now "X" won't start, when I type startx I get the following error which I've written what seems to be in important stuff down, but it would be handy to be able to do like a screen print from CLI, is that possible?

    Code:
    INPUT_METHOD is not set or empty
    
    There is no default input method for current locale
    
    GCONFTOOL-2: Error while loading shared libaries: LIBGMODULE-2.0.so.0: Cannot open shared object.
    And then it goes on about not able to find a directory in bin I should have noted that as well. I've been searching the last day for answer, but no luck, so I thought I'd ask.

    Thanks in advance

    possibly,when updating, you did a kernel update ? if so, you may have to redo your graphics driver,if you are using nvidia or ati,not from the repo's,you may have to re-install them

    I don't recall seeing a kernel update on the list. I might redo my graphics driver just to see what happens though.
