Dear Sir or Madam,

I now have one HP Pavillion laptop running under Xubuntu -- a second 
Pavillion laptop running under Ubuntu -- a HP TouchPad running under 
WebOS -- and now am working on my last PC, an older Compaq ( about 10+ 
years ) D300 trying to get it running under Lubuntu.

So, far I have been learning something new just about everyday -- which 
is what I enjoy.  Next process will be to get them networked together so 
my family and some friends can have access to the world at their ease 
and convenience.

BUT I am having difficulty in getting the GUI to come up when the user 
logs on -- or for that matter to come up at all.  And I've been reading 
all my manuals as well as going to user forums and blogs.  I read in my 
manuals that the GUI vs Command Line ( text ) is triggered by the entry 
in the  ( /etc/inittab ) file ( 2 for the GUI ).  But can't get it to work.

Anybody have any insight as to what I'm missing???
