Can anyone help me?
Yes, you are supposed to type it in after you log in to root. I am not sure why it is not working for you, but that is the only command I know that launches your desktop. It works fine for me. Have you tried this more than once? If you keep getting the error, you may have to re-install linux. I am not too sure.
Hi there yes i have tried it more than once and i keep getting the same message i have also tried re-installing Linux but it dosent make a difference i don't know what to do
please do a full install, it will take 2 hours but graphical mode will be available.
After you typed root then try typing passwd to reset your password after it reboot. I hope it work!
