GDM is not used by default in Mint versions 12 and later.
1. You can run these commands in one of the consoles (also called VTs or tty's) opened by Ctrl-Alt-F1 to F6:
- Code: Select all
sudo service gdm stop
sudo service gdm start
2. After running the start command, press Ctrl-Alt-F7 or Ctrl-Alt-F8 (depending on the Mint version you use) to switch to the graphical environment, then GDM can continue.
