Even faster, if it works and has always for me, is to boot up

when the Gui menu finishes loading select xfix(may be off
screen so scroll down if you don't see it), let it finish
running and when the Gui comes up again select continue
booting or something to that effect. If it works you will get
the xlogin screen and just sign in. This is much quicker to
try before reinstalling period. AAMOF, it's rarely necessary
to reinstall. BTW, you should never delete a program file in
Ubuntu; much better to purge it and leave no config files to
mess up things. HTHs and perhaps save you some time.


Just an FYI. Did an update on vbox 9.04 32 bit. Lost display.
Followed your directions Len and it cleared right up. Thanx.
