You use the A-EON Live Remix distribution. Don't you?
You are right. I installed from the CD and updated from the ubuntu repository 12.04!
Hi Papaoskar,

I'll try to compile the new LibreOffice for our A-EON Live Remix distribution.

Rgds,

I tried to upgrade 12.04 LTS to the 14.04 LTS and did it according to the description which was given for upgrading Lubuntu 14.04 to 14.10.
All went fine except that I was never asked which flavour i Like. Used the kernel 3.17 from CF-card. After reboot I ended up with the terminal which asked me to login. I logged in with username and password.
But all tries to start a graphical Desktop failed. 'startx' did not work. I could install all programs I wanted, but due to a lack of a graphical display manager no show. I installed the Mesa package to no avail. And the other requested libraries.

Hi Papaoskar,

First, install a desktop enviroment. For example LXDE:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop
Or Xfce:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
The x server has not been configured automatically on Lubuntu 14.04. You have to create manually a xorg.conf file. I had the problem that the fonts were not displayed. The solution is to set the option "RenderAccel" to "false" in the xorg.conf file. For example my xorg.conf file: xorg.conf.tar.gz.

Cheers,

Christian

I downloaded your xorg.conf.tar.gz , had a look inside and recognised it beeing similar to a config file in 12.04. But that was only 3 lines long. Under 12.04 it is located in /etc/X11/config.d . My question now: Where does this config file belong? Any hint.

You have to copy it to /etc/X11.

Done, but no success!
Something else must be missing.

As I said before I installed the ubuntu-desktop which was the only one I could get hold of.
lubuntu or xfce didn't work.

Maybe the display manager isn't installed. Could you try to install LightDM, please?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install lightdm

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install lightdm-gtk-greeter
If it is installed then you have to configure LightDM with:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm
Good luck. ;-)
