1. When the message about viewing the X server output came, I pressed Ctrl Alt F2
2. Now on the new shell I ran command sudo Xorg -configure
3. Then I copied /home/oobe/xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo cp /home/oobe/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
4. At last I started X using command startx
For new user as me, you should change oobe with you username here! /home/oobe/xorg.conf.new
Anyway, for me this solution didn't work. I started the x server, and mint booted, but I got a totally different and messed up interface with the bar on top, and I couldn't click anything.
