Hi there! I installed Kali Linux from USB using the official Kali downloads. 

on boot, I am kicked into a terminal. it seems to be kali, i can log in with username and password.. but there is no GUI

From what I can figure out, the GNOME display (is this right?)  is not installed correctly.

 

I have tried reinstalling Kali multiple times with same issue, including verifying hash to make sure it's the right image.

 

The IRC channel for Kali Linux ignores me, and I can't find a working tutorial online..

so. think you can help me out?

 

I CAN get into Grub Kali Recovery.

I AM online when the terminal boots, 

and I do not want to lose the windows installation.

 

On boot I see

Kali GNU/Linux Rolling kali tty1

Kali LoginL

 

looking forward to your reply, and I will be as helpful as I can describing anything you need. :D

Does "startx" or "sudo startx" command bring up the gui?

What happens when you execute these commands?

Hi eeeeeeeeeekkkk, :welcome: to BC and to the Linux & Unix section, hope you enjoy your time here.

 

 

I installed Kali Linux from USB using the official Kali downloads.

 

Can you tell us the source site for that, the version of Kali etc - name of the .iso would be good, eg kali-linux-light-2.0-amd64.iso ?

 

Thanks

Hello! I would like to comment to let everyone know the issue is fixed, 

As well as let others know what happened. 

 

Kali Linux is a hungry hungry OS. 

because I did not give it enough space, thinking 10GB would be enough to run, it would fail to start at load in terminal mode.

 

To fix it I booted from Live USB, and using Gparted (a app on the live usb) changed the partition of space that kali was installed on. 

 

I would also like to answer all of your questions, and thank you for your help!

 

--

Did you update Grub after the install?

Yes. Grub was installed, and updated with both windows & Linux options for boot.

 

Does "startx" or "sudo startx" command bring up the gui?

Startx returns the error that it's not found. 

 

wizardfromoz, Love your welcome! 

I installed from This Site Version  Kali Linux 64 bit 2016.2

I hope this thread helps someone in the future. Operating systems like space!

 

Final note. I have 0 regrets about dropping a hefty hunk of change when you had a outrageous lawsuit.
Keep being you :D

That's wonderful eeeeeeeeeekkkk ... the only thing better than a problem self-solved is ... not having the problem in the first place? :lmao:

 

But self-solved is cool :thumbup2:

 

We look forward to having you around for a long time, and to hear of your adventures with the Death Goddess (Kali).

 

Keep rocking with Linux

 

:wizardball: Wizard, and thanks for that link info.

I'm just curious- how many gigs did you increase the partition for it to load correctly?

Good question musical one.

 

And at the OP - and what desktop did you choose from that link you provided? I will be downloading one shortly.

 

After that, this Topic has likely finished its business.

 

Cheers
