desktop gui for ubuntu

Postby srinivasporam » Mon Aug 31, 2015 11:42 am

Hi,
We have followed the following link from RobertNelson's post to port Unbuntu on Wandboard dual
https://eewiki.net/display/linuxonarm/Wandboard

Now, board is booting to Ubuntu.

after booting , we have run following commands:

$sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

then installed kde desktop:

$ sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

after rebooting it is still going to commandline , No gui is coming.

We tried installing lxde by

$ sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

then also, same is the case.

is there anybody who got desktop gui after porting Ubuntu based on robert Nelson's post. How to resolve the issue

Hi srinivasporam:

eewiki's kernel has no gpu driver for wandboard, you can download our kernel to compile (3.10.53), remember to change the gpu library to version 3.17.

Thank you!

Hi,

I used Robert's 4.0.5 kernel for my Wandboard Quad and it worked for me. All i did was follow every step as it is. And I put lubuntu-desktop. Works great.

Regards.
