But then I come to magnus@ubuntu & again. what do I have to do???

    Please help."

    It's been a while since I have been here, and I have do not have the problem anymore. What wrong was, the grafical desktop was not installd. But I was guieded threw it by a member of an other forum.
    If anyone has the same problem as I, here is what I did.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    then
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    and finaly
    Code:
    startx
