Asked by Lennart Nilhov on 2013-02-16

I have bougt a Diablotek U310 from Amazon

I am an old FreeBSDuser with a lot of experience.
I have put in new user with editing passwd!
Right number and so on. New password for new user.
After what I have got a startwindow without applicatio in left side and no upper right command

I can't reach the Terminal and this are the first problem

Are there any possibility to use ftp to get any shellscript for executing in su-mode?

Of course I can't use sudo now

Hi ,
If you give us more informations it would be easier for us to help you.

1) What is the version of Ubuntu you have installed in the problematic machine ?

2) Are you ready for a new installation (means: have you a good backup of your personal files ? )

3) What exactly you want to achieve ?
a) Desktop access
b) Permissions access
c) Login access

Thank you.

Hi,

Keyboard shortcuts works ?
If yes , you can try and open a terminal with CTRL+ALT+T .

Then apply the commands below and post back here full results please

lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga

lsb_release -rcd ; uname -rm

echo $DESKTOP_SESSION

Also if keyboard works , you can open a browser with a command in terminal , such as:

firefox

Thanks
